Kansas State makes the hire of Collin Klein official. Bill Snyder on his former QB joining the K-State coaching staff: "Collin is a great person: caring, loyal, hard working, responsible and disciplined. He will be received well by his peers, players and support staff, as will his lovely wife Shalin. Collin has a love and passion, not only for football, but even more so for guiding youth toward successful lives. Our program has always been centered around achieving success in five different areas of a young man's life: becoming the best they possibly can with their faith, their family, as a person, a student and a football athlete. Collin represents those priorities as well as any player we have ever had."

Former Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is returning to his alma mater as an assistant coach, replacing longtime Bill Snyder assistant Del Miller, a source confirmed to ESPN.com. GoPowercat.com first reported the hire. As a quarterback, Klein finished third in the Heisman voting in 2012 behind Johnny Manziel and Manti Te'o on the way to leading the Wildcats to a Big 12 title. He finished his college career with 57 rushing touchdowns. Klein spent last season coaching quarterbacks at Northern Iowa. Miller arrived at K-State with Snyder in 1989. After a stint as the head coach at Missouri State from 1995-2000, Miller rejoined Snyder's staff.
