Kansas State announces new contract for Bill Snyder

Kansas State athletic director John Currie announced today that Bill Snyder has agreed to a new multi-year contract, securing the services of the legendary K-State figure through the 2013 season.

The contract is retroactive to February 1, 2009, and includes annual compensation, which will total nearly $10 million over the five-year agreement.

The new deal was approved by the K-State Athletics, Inc., Board of Directors earlier Friday.

"Coach Snyder is one of the true legends of college football," Currie said in a statement. "He is an outstanding ambassador for this University, community and state.
