Kansas State making coaching changes

MANHATTAN, Kan. (KWCH) Head K-State football coach Bill Snyder announced Sunday that linebacker coach Mike Cox will not return next year.

Cox has been with the Wildcats since the 2012 season.

“I appreciate the time I have spent at K-State coaching and mentoring so many great young men, but it's time for me to step away and focus more on my family and my children,” said Cox. “I look forward to following the Wildcats next season and for many years to come."

“We are grateful for what Mike has done for our program and young people and respect the decision he has made to spend more time with his family,” Snyder said.

A search for a replacement will begin immediately.
