Snyder honored as Dodd coach of the year

The Big 12's Coach of the Year collected another big honor.

From our news story:

Kansas State's Bill Snyder, who guided the Wildcats to an 11-1 regular season, is the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year.

Snyder was announced as the unanimous winner of the award at halftime of Monday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl between LSU and Clemson. The winner is picked each year by votes from a panel which includes previous winners.

Well deserved. Snyder's Wildcats will close their season on Thursday night against No. 4 Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl.
