With a season-opening win tucked firmly into his back pocket, Bill Snyder will also have a little additional cash stuffed into his wallet thanks to a contract tweak.
Kansas State announced Saturday that the school has increased Snyder’s pay by $250,000. With the bump, Snyder will make in the neighborhood of $2.2 million in 2012.
KSU said that the increase in pay was the acknowledgement of Snyder’s “tremendous leadership of the program and K-State’s commitment to excellence in football.”
The 72-year-old coach is in the midst of his second go-around with the Wildcats, having totaled 160 wins in his 20-plus seasons at the school.
The 160th win came Saturday as KSU, after a very slow start — the Wildcats were up 9-6 at the half — pulled away for a 51-9 win over Missouri State.
