Kansas State hires North Dakota State’s Chris Klieman as head coach


Kansas State has hired North Dakota State’s Chris Klieman as its next head coach, multiple sources familiar with the decision told ESPN on Monday.

The Athletic first reported that the Wildcats are expected to hire Kleiman, who has gone 67-6 with three Football Championship Subdivision national championships at North Dakota State.

He will succeed Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder, who retired earlier this month. Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor promoted Klieman to head coach at North Dakota State while serving as AD at the school in 2013.

Klieman is expected to agree to a six-year deal, paying him $2.3 million per year with a $200,000 annual raise with the Wildcats, sources told ESPN.
