Kansas signs Bill Self to lifetime contract amid NCAA investigation

Kansas and Bill Self, together until the bitter end. The Jayhawks just announced they have signed Self, age 58, to a lifetime contract. His current contract, set to expire in March 2022, will be replaced by a new five-year rolling agreement that adds one year at the end of each season for the remainder of his career. As you may recall, the Jayhawks are still being investigated by the NCAA, which alleged five Level I violations for their role in the college hoops bribery scandal.

“I want to extend my sincere appreciation to Chancellor Girod, Kurt Watson, and the rest of the leadership at KU for their belief and faith in me to provide this lifetime contract,” Self said in the statement.
