Sean Snyder takes over Kansas State's special teams

MANHATTAN -- Sean Snyder will take on a full-time coaching role next season and coordinate special teams for Kansas State.

The son of head coach Bill Snyder, he had been serving as the Wildcats' Associate Head Coach and Director of Football Operations. He will keep both titles in addition to his new role.

"I am truly excited to have Sean on the field with us as our special teams coordinator and specialists coach," Bill Snyder said. "He has been invaluable to our football program with great integrity, competency, diligent hard work, tremendous insight and sincere loyalty for the past 20 years."

Sean Snyder was an All-American punter for K-State in the early 90s, and has worked for the Wildcats since 1994. He received his start as a part-time assistant coach, and switched his efforts to the administrative side of things in 1996.

His move to special teams coach filled the only remaining opening on K-State's football coaching staff.
