North Dakota State head football coach Chris Klieman has accepted the head coaching job at Kansas State University. He will replace longtime Wildcat head coach Bill Snyder who is retiring at the age of 79. Klieman has been the head coach at North Dakota State since 2014. During that time the Bison have won three of the last four NCAA FCS Football National Championships and have compiled an overall record of 67-6, 36-4 in conference play. The Bison take on the South Dakota State Jackrabbits with a trip to the national championship game on the line Friday. Klieman will continue to coach the Bison through the end of the season.
