The first possible candidate for the Texas Longhorns tight ends coach/special teams coordinator emerged on Thursday with a report from Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods that Kansas State Wildcats senior special teams analyst Sean Snyder interviewed for the position.

Since Thursday is the final day of the dead period prior to the final three recruiting weekends leading up to National Signing Day, head coach Tom Herman would surely like to fill the final two spots on his staff as quickly as possible, though he could keep one spot open to allow Director of Recruiting Bryan Carrington on the recruiting trail.

Regardless of those decisions, Snyder is an intriguing candidate largely because of his work with the Kansas State special teams, which he coached from 2011-18 while serving as the assistant head coach. After his father retired in 2018, the younger Snyder moved into his current position. He previously served as the Director of Football Operations from 1994 to 2010.

Snyder redshirted during his one season at Iowa, then transferred to Kansas State, where he became a consensus All-American punter. His playing experience helped him become the Special Teams Coach of the Year in 2015 and 2017 from Phil Steele. ESPN and Football Scoop also awarded him similar honors for his work during those two seasons.

If there’s a concern with Snyder, it’s that he doesn’t have any experience as a position coach.

Snyder is also under consideration from Nebraska to serve in a similar position to the one he currently occupies at Kansas State.
