Klieman has his ‘dream opportunity’ as head coach for K-State football

Skylar Thomas has always wanted the opportunity to be the go-to guy for the Kansas State University football team.

He’ll get that opportunity this fall.

After being part of an ever-changing rotation as the Wildcats’ signal caller last season, the job is Thomas’s with the off-season transfer of Alex Delton to the University of Texas-El Paso.

“I don’t feel the pressure of wondering what happens if I make a mistake,” said the junior from Independence, Mo. “I won’t have to look over my shoulder wondering when I’m going to be pulled.”

Of course, that change is overshadowed by only the second time in the last 30 years that Bill Snyder hasn’t been walking the sidelines for the Wildcats. And K-State fans are hoping this transition will be much better than the one which occurred when Ron Prince took over for Snyder from 2006-08.

His dismal 17-20 record over three seasons - including three losses to the University of Kansas - led to the rehiring of Snyder.
