Kansas State Wildcats head football coach Bill Snyder announced Monday he has been diagnosed with throat cancer, but he expects to be available for spring practices.
ESPN's Jake Trotter passed along this from Snyder:
Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle reported Sunday that Snyder had missed some work days and hadn't attended recent Wildcats basketball games, which he typically does during the offseason.
The 77-year-old led Kansas State to a 9-4 record and AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl victory over the Texas A&M Aggies during the 2016 season. He also reached 200 wins in his career (currently 202-105-1) during the campaign.
Snyder recently inked the No. 59 recruiting class for 2017, per Scout's rankings, and is looking to lead the Wildcats to their eighth straight bowl game.
