Matthew Snyder, grandson of Kansas State Wildcats legendary coach Bill Snyder, has passed away at the age of 22-years-old. Matthew is the son of Kansas State assistant coach Sean Snyder.
According to a report from The Mercury, an emergency medical call was placed on Wednesday. At the time of this writing, the details currently available are scant, as police have confirmed the death, but are not yet releasing any other information.
The university is expected to release a statement at some point on Thursday. It is not yet known to what extent — or via what medium — it will be.
Given the relationship between the entire Snyder family and the Kansas State community, this will touch many people beyond the football program. Bill Snyder, who coached this past season while battling cancer, has been coaching the program, off and on, since 1989. He, as well as his family, are a well documented pillar of the community.

Our thoughts go out to the entire Snyder family during this tragic time.
