Avery Johnson Makes Announcement Concerning His Future at K-State

Syndication: Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

There have been a plethora of changes to the offensive side of the ball since we saw Kansas State last play a football game, a 42-35 loss to Iowa State in a classic Farmageddon matchup.

Will Howard, K-State’s all-time passing touchdowns leader, has entered the portal and is one of the biggest names available at his position. The Wildcats also had quarterbacks Jake Rubley and
Adryan Lara hit the portal, leaving just Avery Johnson as the only quarterback with experience in the room.

Then, offensive coordinator Collin Klein shocked the world by leaving his alma mater and taking the offensive coordinator job at Texas A&M. With Klein aspiring to be a head coach, it makes sense for him to prove his success can stand outside of Manhattan, but it still hurts for the Wildcats.


One of the biggest questions that came from his move is how it would affect Avery Johnson’s status with his position coach and coordinator out the door.

Well, Johnson addressed his future on Thursday, via the K-State Twitter (I won’t call it “X”) page. No. 5 is gone, but Avery Johnson will be sticking around.

Avery Johnson is the future at K-State, and that alone should give Wildcats’ fans plenty to be excited about later this month and heading into 2024.

Kansas State is set to take on NC State in the Pop-Tarts Bowl in Orlando, Florida, on December 28, with kickoff scheduled for 5:45 p.m. ET on ESPN.
