Snyder, staff get pay boosts

By Jelani Yancey

Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder and his staff are receiving a boost in pay this season, K-State atletic director John Currie announced.

Snyder, who guided the Wildcats to a 51-9 win over Missouri State on Saturday, is receiving a $250,000 raise that pushes his annual salary to $2.2 million. Snyder’s long-term contract also rolled over, as it does every year, while adding a fifth year.

“Over my time here in Manhattan, Coach Snyder has never asked me for any increase for himself — he is always focused on improving the program and developing the team,” Currie said in a letter to fans.

“However, President (Kirk) Schulz and I felt it was important to recognize his tremendous leadership of the program and K-State’s commitment to excellence in football.”

The nine K-State assistant coaches have also received a raise of 20 percent, which Currie said moves them into the middle range of the league.
