MANHATTAN, Kan. - Days after saying he could see himself continuing to coach for "quite some time," Bill Snyder has agreed to a new five-year contract with the Kansas State football team that will run through 2022.

Snyder, 78, is the oldest active coach in college football. He will be 83 when this contract expires.

The new contract will increase Snyder's pay from $3.2 million to $3.45 million this season. His annual pay will increase by $300,000 at the conclusion of 2019 and 2020. If he remains coach at that time, he will sit down with K-State athletic director Gene Taylor and negotiate a new salary for the final years of his deal.

Recently, it was reported that there was no communication, no progress and no optimism about a contract extension getting done as Mack continues to hold out of training camp.Then on Tuesday after spending time with the team in Napa, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported there is “no present offer from the Raiders to star pass-rusher Khalil Mack and there has been no contract talks with Mack’s camp since February.”That’s about the worst possible news Raiders fans could have gotten on this front.

Share Texas helped Kansas State 's Bill Snyder celebrate his 78th birthday with a signed card. For the occasion, the Longhorns decided to give Snyder a big birthday card before kickoff Per ESPN’s 2015 story, Snyder goes through four purple felt pens per week, and writes dozens of letters per day .

Though the contract runs through 2017, it contains the same automatic rollover provision after the completion of each season that was also in his past contract . He reworked their contracts last offseason and gave Snyder a 0,000 raise last summer.

Taylor had been working with Snyder on a new contract since the end of the 2017 season, when the financial terms of Snyder's old contract required an update.

"It has been a pleasure watching our football program up close over the past year and seeing one of the greatest coaches in the history of college football continue to positively impact student-athletes while also producing winning seasons on a yearly basis," Taylor said in a statement. "With this new contract, we felt that it was important to recognize his commitment to our football program, and we look forward to his continued leadership."

Snyder technically had five years remaining on his old contract, which featured an automatic rollover at the conclusion of each year. In that sense, this is more of a contract update than a contract extension. The new contract does not contain any rollover language.

Snyder seems ready to continue coaching for the forseeable future. Earlier this week at K-State football media day, he said "I could go on for quite some time if I don't get fired and keep having an impact on the players in my program and my family is comfortable with it. I don't see any particular end in sight."

K-State hired Snyder as its football coach in 1989. He is entering his 27th year as coach after retiring following the 2005 season and returning in 2009.

"My entire family and I have been so very grateful for the genuine, caring and loyal support K-Staters have provided our coaches, staff, families and young people on a yearly basis," Snyder said in a statement. "And, as I have stated so often we came to Kansas State because of the people, stayed because of the people and returned because of the people, and that remains unchanged.
