Kansas State head football coach Bill Snyder agreed to a five-year $14.75 million extension that will keep him at the school until he's 78.
Snyder will earn $2.75 million in 2013 with $100,000 escalators every year. Fellow Big 12 coaches Mack Brown (Texas), Bob Stoops (Oklahoma), Gary Patterson (TCU) and Mike Gundy (Oklahoma State) all make more than $3 million per year.
"We are thrilled Coach Snyder has accepted this new contract and proud of the competitive improvement our team has made -- both on the field and in the classroom -- under his leadership," Kansas State athletic director John Currie said in a statement. "Coach Snyder's daily drive, focus and energy in continuing to build the K-State football program are truly remarkable and inspirational. While he is not one to focus attention on himself, President [Kirk] Schulz and I felt that it was important to recognize, in this very significant way, his tremendous leadership and commitment to continuing to lead the K-State football program."
