Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has been voted into the College Football Hall of Fame, a person familiar with the results told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the results will be formally announced Friday in Dallas. Snyder became eligible as an active coach when he turned 75 in October.
Snyder took over one of the worst programs in the history of major college football in 1989 and turned it into a national contender. He briefly retired in 2005, but returned three seasons later after the program had fallen on hard times.
Snyder is 187-94-1 at Kansas State, easily the winningest coach in school history. He’s led the Wildcats to two Big 12 titles and 16 bowl games, including this year’s Alamo Bowl.
