Coleman, who played at K-State from 1990-1993, has been the WR coach since 2013 and has been the passing game coordinator since 2016.

Charlie Dickey and Collin Klein were promoted to co-offensive coordinators. Dickey will coordinate the running game and Klein will coordinate the passing game.

“We are fortunate to have three coaches who have had so much experience in our offense – a total of about 30 years – both past and present,” Bill Snyder said in a statement. “We’ve been blessed to have so many loyal, caring and effective coaches over the years, and these three exemplify those values. I have been pleased with how well these three have worked together.”

Coleman coached Tyler Lockett, who left K-State as the all-time leader in career receptions, yards, and touchdowns and Byron Pringle, who ranks second in K-State history in yards per catch at 19.64.
