Texas A&M offensive coordinator and QBs coach Collin Klein formally bids adieu to Kansas State

Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when you’ve been in one place for 14 of the last 16 years.

Texas A&M co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Collin Klein formally bid adieu to Kansas State on Friday night with a post on X.

“Dear Wildcat family,

“The last 14 years have been beyond special. I thank God every day for bringing me to Kansas State. The relationships, memories, lessons, challenges and joys are too many to count. From an 18-year-old not knowing which way was up, to meeting my beautiful wife Shalin, to winning two Big 12 Championships, it has been a heck of a ride. K-State didn’t just give me a job but gave me a mission. That mission of taking care of people, not letting anyone put limitations on what you can accomplish and being the toughest-minded competitor out there is what K-State is all about. I hope I was able to impart this to every player I had the privilege to work with.

“A special thank you to every team and every player I was fortunate enough to coach. Thank you to my fellow coaches and coworkers. It never felt like we worked because we all cared about the mission and each other. Thank you to the administration of John Currie and Gene Taylor for their leadership in setting the standard of excellence for K-State Athletics. I am so fortunate to have worked under two of the best head coaches to ever do it! Thank you to coach Snyder who gave me my first opportunity in coaching and instilled the mental toughness and discipline needed to be excellent every day. Thank you to coach Klieman who gave me an opportunity to stay at K-State and will forever be a dear mentor and friend.

“There is never a perfect time for change and growth but I do feel this is the time. With K-State it is never goodbye, merely see you later! We love you K-State family and we will always bleed purple!


Head coach Mike Elko hired Holmon Wiggins from Alabama on Jan. 2 to serve as wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator alongside Klein.
