Snyder to retire today

Kansas State Collegian (article)

Coach Bill Snyder will coach his final game at K-State Saturday against Missouri.
Snyder, K-State's all-time winningest coach with a 135-68-1 record, is expected to announce his retirement at today's 1 p.m. press conference, the Web site www.gopowercat.com reported Monday night.

Snyder came to K-State in 1988 and inherited a program mired in a 27-game winless streak that would stretch to 30 games. The Wildcats were widely known as one of the worst programs in college football, which prompted Sports Illustrated to name the football program "Futility U."

What Snyder did at K-State has since been regarded as the greatest turnaround in college football history.
