Thanks for the awesome ride, Bill.
Well, I was heading home from work last night at about 11:20, when my phone rang. It was Jason Marsh. He tells me Bill Snyder will retire tomorrow. First off, I’m thinking, since he’s in Aggieville at the moment, this could just be a alcohol induced joke. So I took it with a grain of salt.
So I wasn’t entirely surprised when I woke up this morning to the news. This Saturday will be Bill Snyder’s last game coaching the Wildcats after 17 years as head coach. It’ll be a pretty emotional Saturday at KSU Stadium, which will soon be renamed “Bill Snyder Family Stadium.” I can’t wait to see how the stadium erupts in appreciation for everything he has done at K-State as he walks out of the locker room this weekend for Senior Day.
