HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Marshall University Director of Athletics Bob Marcum said Mark Snyder will remain head football coach.

In a statement, Marcum said, “To avoid any speculation concerning our football program, Mark Snyder is and will remain our head football coach.”

After Saturday's 38-35 loss to Tulsa, Snyder told WSAZ Sports Director Keith Morehouse that school officials told him "nothing" about next year.

"We're planning on hitting the road recruiting (Sunday)," Snyder said.

In four seasons as Herd head coach, Snyder has a 16-31 record (13-19, C-USA).
