Kansas State Wildcats head coach Chris Klieman is having a good week, and we had 44 million reasons why after the coach and program reached an agreement on his new deal.
Klieman’s future $5.5 million a year is roughly $1 million a year more than Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian’s annual salary. Klieman led the Wildcats to a Big 12 championship over the TCU Horned Frogs, who would go on to beat the Michigan Wolverines in the College Football Playoff semifinals before falling, woefully, to the Dear Star ... or the Georgia Bulldogs.
