Bill Snyder frustrated with college sports, considering Kansas State exit


The Kansas State head coach isn't happy with the way college sports is currently set up and doesn't want to be part of the system much longer.

Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder could be considering stepping away from college football sooner rather than later. Snyder isn't a big fan of the current college athletics apparatus that relies entirely on generating revenue, particularly through the extension of huge television contracts.

Courtesy of Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, here's what Snyder told 610 Sports Radio KCSP.

Asked by a host if the current state of college athletics makes Snyder consider if he wants "to be in it much longer," the coach replied: "You're not too far away. You're absolutely right."

Snyder signed a new contract after the conclusion of the 2013 season lasting five years and totaling $14.75 million, ranking 5th overall in the Big 12. Snyder commented on the show that he was "grossly overpaid" for his services.

Kansas State has won two Big 12 titles with Snyder at the helm and gone to 14 bowl games in his 22 years coaching the Wildcats. Interestingly, Snyder's success in Manhattan has led to Kansas State becoming one of the most profitable (if not the most profitable) programs in the country, as the Wildcats have the largest net income out of any college football program.
