A legendary college football coach made a cryptic comment following Saturday's loss that has fans wondering about his future.

Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder said after his team's blowout loss to No. 12 West Virginia that he "can't coach" the kind of team that played the Mountaineers on Saturday.

“I went in the locker room and I accepted the responsibility for being behind in the ballgame at the halftime with our players,” Snyder told reporters, “because there were two touchdowns following that. But I can’t coach a team that can’t get six inches on a play.”

It's an odd statement from an iconic head coach that has rarely made those kind of comments while speaking to the media, the kind of comments that make headlines.

There are now many people, Kansas State fans included, saying that it is time for Bill Snyder to call it a career. Maybe it won't come during the season, but after it.

Kansas State is set to host Texas next Saturday.
