Kansas State Wildcats head football coach Bill Snyder told reporters Tuesday he's currently done with treatments for throat cancer. 

"I’m finished with all the treatments, just kind of going through the after-effects right now and will get tested again a while down the road in a few months," he said, per Yahoo Sports' Nick Bromberg

According to the Wichita Eagle's Kellis Robinett, Snyder disclosed his final treatment was in early March and that the prognosis remains positive. 

"The hardest part is just the after-effects that come along with it," Snyder said, per Robinett. "That is what we are going through right now. But millions and millions of people have done it."

Snyder, 77, revealed the diagnosis in February.  

Kansas State is scheduled to host its annual Purple-White Spring Game Saturday, April 22, while the Wildcats' 2017 season opener will feature a clash against the Central Arkansas Bears Saturday, Sept. 2.
