Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has been voted the AP Big 12 coach of the year after leading the Wildcats to the third conference championship in school history and a berth in the Fiesta Bowl.
The Wildcats' only loss came at Baylor late in the season, when they had climbed to No. 1 in the BCS standings. They rebounded to beat Texas last Saturday to wrap up their first Big 12 title since 2003, when Snyder was still in his first tenure at Kansas State.
Snyder also won the award last season, when he led the Wildcats to the Cotton Bowl, and in 1998, when Kansas State came up just short of playing for a national championship. The only other three-time winner of the award is Oklahoma's Bob Stoops.

The Heisman and Kansas State don’t have much of a past together. For a while it looked like Wildcats senior quarterback Collin Klein might change that.
