Report: Venables not interested in Kansas State

Another day has come and gone and Brent Venables is still at Oklahoma. There's been a lot of speculation about Venables' future since Mike Stoops joined the Oklahoma staff, as he was mentioned as a replacement for Jeff Casteel at West Virginia, and he's interviewed at Clemson as well. Following the news on Tuesday that Chris Cosh had left Kansas State to become defensive coordinator at South Florida, plenty of people did the math and wondered if Venables would move to Manhattan.

He is a Kansas State graduate after all.

It seems that speculation can be put to rest. The Tulsa World's Dave Sittler tweeted on Wednesday that Venables is "absolutely not interested" in taking the defensive coordinator job at Kansas State. Which does come as a bit of a surprise. As mentioned above, Venables did go to school at Kansas State, and with Bill Snyder being 72 years old, you have to wonder how much longer he'll be sticking around to run the program.

So it's possible that Venables could take the job at Kansas State as the "head coach in waiting." A position that hasn't had a lot of success at other schools recently -- hey, Bill Stewart, how you doing? --  but Venables has shown plenty of interest in becoming a head coach before. Maybe his priorities have changed, or maybe he's just not sure how much success he could have at Kansas State.

After all, there's a lot more defensive talent at Oklahoma than there is in Manhattan.

Whatever the case is, it seems that Venables has narrowed his choices down to staying at Oklahoma or going to Clemson. We'll likely find out his decision soon enough.

Thanks whutever.  Seems like he wasn't very popular, from a lot of other things I've been reading.

cooler . . . because he doesn't compete well in the Big XII.  He hasn't changed a thing in the last 8 years.  They've figured his schemes out already.  Going to the ACC might give him a fresh start.  Either way, I'm glad he's leaving!

It's the opposite, K-State doesn't want BV. BV burned that bridge long ago....I doubt he is ever welcomed back in Manhattan. Controversial topic among K-Staters.

God you're dumb. The #2 Big 12 team who would've have dominated a dormant B1G school in the Sugar Bowl will be last!? Lmao....K-State has more Top 10 BCS finishes than Mich. Also, think about it....Clemson???? The team that got rocked, err the conference that got rocked, by WV. BV isn't interested in K-State b/c K-State isn't interested in him....if you knew the history you would understad...well maybe not, you seem stupid.

Ironic as well. "Haters gonna hate" is this guys' motto, yet he is the epitome of it.

Have fun enjoying the one season of success after decades of complete failure and underachieving. Typical, inflated B1G fan....there's a reason the Big 12 was the #2 conference and the B1G was 4th!!!! K-State = #2 in Big 12, Mich. wasn't even #2 in its' legend/leader/whatever gay term division. Get a clue fair weather and uninformed fan.

Because Venables sucks!  He's been over his head ever since he took the reigns of the defense.  This Sooner fan will be thrilled with him leaving.

Why would he go from OU to Kstate? that's down grading yourself to the future most crappiest team in the Big 10/12

Seems odd that such a good fit wouldn't interest him, but he could just be trying to make his name somewhere else.
