Rivals.com has learned that Kansas State coach Ron Prince soon will be given a contract extension.

Prince, who turns 39 on Sept. 18, is entering his third season with the Wildcats. He is 12-13 overall and 7-9 in the Big 12 in two seasons since taking over for legendary K-State coach Bill Snyder.

Published reports list Prince's salary at $760,000 per season, making him the lowest-paid coach in the Big 12 and the only coach in the conference making less than $1 million per season.

Last season, K-State was 5-7. The Wildcats finished with a four-game losing streak and placed fourth in the Big 12 North. The Wildcats did beat No. 7 Texas 41-21 in Austin, giving the school its first-ever road win over a top-10 team.

In his debut season as coach in 2006, Prince led the program to its first winning mark since 2003 by forging a 7-6 record that included a bid to the Texas Bowl against Rutgers. The highlight of the season was a 45-42 win over No. 4 Texas, and the Wildcats finished tied for second in the Big 12 North.

In the two seasons before he took over, the Wildcats won a total of nine games.

Kansas State is picked by most to finish near the bottom of the Big 12 North this season.

Prince was Virginia's offensive coordinator for three seasons under Al Groh before becoming coach at Kansas State. For two years before becoming the Cavaliers' coordinator, Prince was Virginia's offensive line coach. He also has been an assistant at Division I-AA schools Cornell, James Madison, South Carolina State and Alabama State.

And you thought Bill Callahan's extension was bad. Ron Prince goes through assistant coaches like they're going out of style. The guy is a turd. Iowa State has hope now.

I like Ron Prince. What was that game where KSU scored like 2 kick returns, and Prince started doing this power stomp on the sideline with his arms flailing all around.

This is a surprise. I thought for sure Prince would be canned after this season.

We will see on Prince, he could still pan out. Look no further than Mangino and Pinkel for evidence that things could still turn around. Give the guy a few more years before coming to a conclusion. Those guys at KU and MU ended up being pretty decent.

I'm still on the fence with him. But I do agree with Petro, we gotta have a couple more years to find out about him.

Nineteen Jucos. Not all of them qualified, however.

Contract extensions mean little. It shows the university has confidence in its coach, but they can be relatively easy and worthwhile to buyout, if necessary. He's got some work to do this year. It's hard to envision a scenario where he gets more than three wins and loses his job. His legacy will more-less be judged on the success or failure of Josh Freeman.

I'd have more faith in him if he didn't recruit so many JUCOs. The whole point of bringing in older players like that is to win now instead of develop young players, so if he's not winning then what's the point of that strategy?

Pinkel and Mangino struggled initially but they also focused on finding raw 18 year olds and coaching them up - that doesn't work as well with JUCOs, and you also get stuck in a cycle of having to constantly recruit more JUCOs to replace the ones that are leaving.

That's what I thought. Has any coach "made a living" with that many Jucos?

Sam Hall
08-06-2008, 12:40 PM
A lot of those JUCOs probably aren't as ready as KSU fans hope. Those two or three seasons fly by and they're gone. It's hard to win now with JUCOs. The team has to be built around high school recruits.

I really have no idea what to make of the guy, hell he's already beat Texas more times than Nebraska has since the inception of the Big XII, but then he turns around and gets his ass kicked by an NU team who's having their worst season in 40 years. WTF???

The 'cats haven't done jack with their wins against Texas. Their best chances to best Nebraska have past them by.

Here's a stat to keep in mind:

Nebraska 2
Josh Freeman 0

What a devastating loss he was.

You should be happy with any conference wins you get this season.

Texas is usually ranked in the Top 25, and the last couple of years they were in the top 10 when we beat them. I don't care who it is, but beating a top 10 team > beating an unranked team.

I'm expecting 2, maybe 3 conference wins. Are you still predicting greatness for Nebraska? That worked out well for you last time.

It's not like we were terrible last year, the first half of our season went quite well - then we collapsed.

I'm thinking out of Texas A&M, Iowa State, Nebraska, Colorado - we can get 2, maybe 3 wins. Perhaps Ron Prince will have a new bitch in the south since Texas is not on the schedule this year? One can only hope.

KSU hasn't capitalized on those wins against Texas. Nobody cares.

I'm predicting seven or eight wins, one of them against KSU, since KSU couldn't beat perhaps the worst NU head coach of all time. NU will beat KSU with a walk-on and a converted running back starting at linebacker.

I agree. The archives are a great aspect of bulletin boards, especially for people like you, who won't let meaningless things go away.

Try this one. You haven't been around much since this faithful day:

Heh - good luck. The Husker faithful are a tad bit more optimistic than you are, which is surprising. Most of what i've been reading is 9/10 wins, challenging Mizzou for the Big XII north crown.

Most people I've seen think seven or eight wins are more realistic. Nine or 10 is asking too much. They play five teams ranked in the coaches' top 15.
