Bob Stoops has a long-standing connection with Bill Snyder, serving as an assistant to the Kansas State coach from 1989 to 1995. But Stoops revealed that he also has a connection with K-State quarterback Collin Klein.

Stoops coached with Klein’s father, Doug Klein, at Kent State. Stoops worked with the Kent State defensive ends while Doug Klein coached the quarterbacks.

“It was his first full-time job and mine,” Stoops said. “A little piece of trivia there for you.”

Doug Klein is no longer a football coach, but his other son, Kyle, is a freshman wide receiver for the Wildcats.
