Joe Robbins/Getty Images(LAWRENCE, Kan) —  The Kansas University Jayhawks and head men’s basketball coach, Bill Self,  have agreed to a restructured contract that will keep him on the sideline at Allen Fieldhouse through the 2021-2022 season.

Self, who will make $3.857 million per season had a previous deal which was set to run through the 2018 season.

The Jayhawks are coming off a loss in the NCAA Tournament Championship game to Kentucky, his second appearance with Kansas in the Final Four.  Self also led them to the 2008 National Title.

Kansas has also won a record eight consecutive Big 12 regular-season titles under Self and average close to 30 wins per season.

If Self remains the head coach through the 2022 season, he is guaranteed to make over $53 million.  There are also bonuses for winning tournaments, and of course the prestigious National Championship.

“I can’t imagine myself coaching anywhere else as long as the people at Kansas want me to be here,” Self said.
