Hall of Fame Coach Bill Self signs amended lifetime contract with KU ✍️
— Kansas Men’s Basketball (@KUHoops) November 7, 2023
“Bill Self is undoubtedly the most consistent coach in college basketball, and a restructuring of his contract terms were long overdue,” KU AD Travis Goff said. “In an ever-changing collegiate athletics environment, our strong commitment to Coach Self positions KU basketball to maintain and enhance its status as the most storied program in the country. Over his 20 years at KU, our men’s basketball program has been a primary source of positive alumni engagement, strong university enrollment, and revenue that has helped fund all other Kansas Athletics programs and invest in all 500 student-athletes every year. With him and his staff at the helm of our basketball program, the future of Kansas Athletics has never been brighter.”
Self has won 788 career games and is the only active head coach in the country with two national championships. Self was hired by Kansas in 2003 after good tenures at Tulsa and Illinois. Self led Kansas to national titles in 2008 and 2022, as well as 17 Big 12 Regular Season Titles.
