Kansas State coach Bill Snyder announced Monday that he has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

He spoke at length in a release from Kansas State Athletics about his condition, explaining that he has been receiving treatment and doctors have projected a positive outcome for him.

An outpouring of messages of prayers and well wishes for the hall-of-fame coach began popping up on Twitter after the announcement.
