K-State announces contract extension for AD Gene Taylor


MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNW) – Kansas State and athletic director Gene Taylor have agreed to a contract extension. It includes a significant jump in base salary to $925,000 per year through June 2027.

The 63-year-old Taylor was nearing the end of a five-year deal he signed in 2017. That contract paid him $450,000 the first year with $50,000 increases each of the next four.

He had agreed to a 13% paycut last year to help with budget problems caused by the pandemic.
