Kansas’ Bill Self Thinks of NBA Future

Mitchell Layton/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Even though Kansas head coach Bill Self should have his hands full this season, he does admit he thinks about coaching in the NBA one day.

“It hasn’t really tempted me because I haven’t had that many people talk to me about it,” Self told the Oklahoman. “But at some point and time, sure, I think it would.”

“It would be great to be able to match wits with the best athletes in the world, but I’m certainly happy where I’m at,” he continued.

Self has been with Kansas since the 2003-2004 season, and has accomplished plenty in his time there, winning 84 percent of his games since becoming head coach. He’s made six Elite Eights and won the NCAA Championship during the 2007-2008 season.

Last September, Kansas gave Self a contract extension through the 2021-2022 season that pays him $3.86 million a year.
