It sounds strange to say that Collin Klien is the face of the Kansas State football program since he’s neither a current player nor the head coach. But there are few who will disagree. Klien played quarterback for the Wildcats from 2009-12. He was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2012. He has risen through the coaching ranks to offensive coordinator, and no doubt will be the head coach at some point. He’s even married to former K-State women’s hoops player (and daughter of a K-State all-American linebacker) Shalin Spani.
