Vahe Gregorian: For once, control eludes Bill Snyder

Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder is a control freak of epic proportions. But he apparently couldn’t control himself when it came to talking about receiver Corey Sutton’s desire to transfer, invoking two failed drug tests as he spoke of Sutton. Sutton on Friday was granted a release from his K-State scholarship and Snyder apologized.

Corey Sutton released from K-State football scholarship; Bill Snyder apologizes

Former Kansas State wide receiver Corey Sutton on Friday was released from his athletic scholarship with the Wildcats. Sutton, from Charlotte, N.C., had been fighting to get a release after announcing earlier this month that he planned to transfer. The release comes a day after K-State football coach Bill Snyder defended his program’s philosophy about granting transfers and referenced a player who failed two drug tests without naming the player. Snyder apologized and K-State says Sutton can transfer to any of the 35 schools on his list.
