KSU, QB part ways

It looks like it's going to be back to the future for Kansas State football.
When Kansas State made its run toward to the Big 12 championship it did it with a dual-threat quarterback and it looks like that's the direction the Wildcats will go under again coach Bill Snyder.
K-State has informed Pasadena (Calif.) Maranatha three-star quarterback Matt Schilz that a change to a dual-threat system will be made now that Snyder is now the coach, compared the pro-style offense run under former coach Ron Prince.
"After speaking with the new K-State coaching staff and learning they plan to run the option offense, Matt has decided to look elsewhere," Schilz's mother, Staci, said Tuesday afternoon.
"He feels that type of offense is not a fit for what he does best as a pocket passer. He is excited to look at other schools."
Schilz, who is the nation's No. 34 pro-style quarterback, had been a long time Wildcat commitment.
He originally picked the Wildcats over interest from Oregon State, San Diego State, Washington State and SMU. Schilz is having an excellent season and should become one of the West's most heavily courted quarterbacks.
He's led Maranatha into the state Southern Section, Division XII semifinals after a 23-22 overtime victory this past weekend against Big Bear. On the season, he's thrown for 2,553 yards and 28 touchdowns.
