MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) The biggest question surrounding Kansas State on national signing day was not which players would sign but the uncertainty of Bill Snyder's future.
The 76-year-old coach did not officially announce he would return to the sideline next season until January, and he has given no indication of his plans beyond that. So, trying to persuade a prospect to join a program for the next four or five years becomes a more difficult proposition.
"I could say, `Hey, I'll be here for 10 years. I'll be here as long as you're here,' but I want them to trust me," Snyder said Wednesday. "Not that I wouldn't be here during their tenure, I just don't know how all of the factors will play out from year to year."
