Snyder retains Latimore as K-State assistant

Mo Latimore, the longest-tenured assistant coach in the Big 12, will spend a 25th season at Kansas State.

Bill Snyder announced today that Latimore will guide the Wildcats’ interior linemen. Joe Bob Clements will oversee the defensive ends.

And now, K-State’s defensive coaching staff is complete. Chris Cosh (linebackers) and Vic Koenning (secondary) will co-coordinate the unit.

Latimore was a third-team All-American at K-State in 1971. During his past 15 seasons in Manhattan, Latimore has tutored four All-Americans.

He began his coaching career at K-State in 1976 as a graduate assistant. In 1984, Latimore moved on to Texas-El Paso, where he coached the defensive line for five seasons. In 1989, he went to Missouri, where he remained through 1993.

Upon arriving back at his alma mater, Latimore helped lead Wildcat defenses to a top-five ranking in total defense in 1995 and 1997-2002.
