Heisman finalist Klein returns as Kansas State coach

Aug 19, 1:25 PM

Collin Klein is back at Kansas State.

The former Heisman Trophy finalist is serving as an offensive quality control coach under longtime coach Bill Snyder. It makes sense, too, considering the two are known for their attention to detail, their toughness and their ability to inspire others.

In fact, the only difference between them may be their ages: Snyder turns 75 in October and Klein turns 25 next month.

Klein said he feels blessed to be back at Kansas State, but also acknowledged some anxiety. For one thing, everyone still remembers what he accomplished on the field. For another thing, he's not quite sure what an offensive quality control coach does.

He hopes to have that figured out by the season opener against Stephen F. Austin on Aug. 30.
