Self Agrees To 10-Year, $52 Million Extension
Bill Self has agreed to an extension that will pay him $52.21 million in total compensation over the next ten years.
“We believe Bill Self is among a very small number of elite basketball coaches in the country, and this ensures that we compensate him accordingly,” KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said.
Self’s new deal pays him $3.856 million annually. Retention payments from his previous contract carry over, meaning he can earn an additional $22.41 million in bonuses by staying with the Jayhawks through the 2022 season.
