MANHATTAN (KSNT) – The 2023 Sunflower Showdown is more than just another win for K-State fans.
Head Coach Chris Klieman is also getting a contract extension… again. It’s a part of a clause in his new contract signed in May. 27 News obtained a copy of Klieman’s contract.
It includes, for each of the first three football seasons K-State wins eight games or more, Klieman will get one year added to his contract. Klieman will now be at K-State through the 2031 season with a $5.3 million base salary in that year.
After K-State gets a bowl bid, Klieman will get a $50,000 bonus. He will also get a $100,000 bonus if K-State finishes tied or alone in third place in the Big 12, $150,000 if it finishes second and $200,000 if it finishes first.
