Bill Snyder eats one meal a day, and you’ll be surprised what it is
The stress and strain of being a head football coach at a major college football program has to be draining. Very long days of coaching during the season, longer travel schedules for recruiting in the offseason. Kansas State Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder seems unphased, even at 74 years old. After eschewing lunch, he only has time for one meal a day at the end. And what is open after midnight? Snyder explains (via Mark Schlabach of ESPN.com)
“One meal a day is accurate. It’s not always Taco Bell. I like Taco Bell. But I eat at other places…Taco Bell is open at midnight, [My wife’s cooking] is not.”
Spoken like a true 18-year-old college student on a $5 per meal budget. With the retirement of 62-year-old Texas coach Mack Brown after last season, Charlie Weis is the next Big 12 head coach closest to Snyder in age at a young 58 years. Weis has all of 4 wins at Kansas, as compared to Snyder’s 178 at rival Kansas State (in 22 seasons).
