What a difference a year makes.
At this time last season, Kansas State football fans were upset with several of Bill Snyder’s assistant coaches and took to the Internet to discuss who should be replaced.
Turned out Keith Burns, the Wildcats’ secondary coach, and Ricky Rahne, the team’s quarterback coach, were the only assistants to leave. Burns took a similar job with Mississippi, and Tom Hayes was brought in from Tulane to replace him. Del Miller slid over to coach quarterbacks, and Sean Snyder moved up to coach special teams.
Some viewed that limited turnover as a bad sign for this season, but things worked out well for K-State.
The Wildcats improved significantly on defense, became more dependable on offense and produced several highlight plays on special teams.
Miller has done a great job with Collin Klein, Chris Cosh has turned around K-State’s defense and Snyder has helped improve K-State in the kicking game.
