The wins keep coming for Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks, eh?
Not even one month after it was announced Self and the university would receive no additional punishments following the NCAA's investigation into wrongdoing, Self has a new contract and a sparkling payday.
Kansas Jayhawks and Bill Self Agree to Restructured Contract
Self signed a lifetime contract with Kansas in 2021, though he'll now become the highest-paid head coach in all of college basketball.
The reworked deal is reportedly worth $53 million over five years with the intention to reevaluate the numbers in 2028. Self was previously earning nearly $6 million annually, so the new contract represents a significant payday for the illustrious coach.
Kansas enters the season as the No. 1 team in the country with a loaded roster, highlighted by incoming transfer Hunter Dickinson and returning starters Dajuan Harris, Kevin McCullar and K.J. Adams.
Expectations are high for the Jayhawks despite winning a national title just two years ago, but that's the job when you're as accomplished as Self.
Per the official release from KU Athletics, Self "has posted a .811 winning percentage with the Jayhawks and led the program to 13-straight Big 12 Conference championships, tying an NCAA record. Self’s 566 wins since coming to Kansas also lead all active Power 5 coaches."
It's been a great month for Self and Kansas, indeed.
