LAWRENCE (KSNT) – On Friday, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self will be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
During his 24-year head coaching career (entering his 14th season with the Jayhawks) Self has compiled a (623-193) overall record.
He’s led his teams to 19-straight 23-win seasons and has been named the Conference Coach of the Year eight times.
Self has one national championship under his belt (2008) and has won more regular-season Big 12 titles (13) than he has home losses (10 inside Allen Fieldhouse).
“The reason I have a chance to go into The Hall is because I coach at Kansas,” said Self. “Let’s be real, you’re at this place where there’s so much attention and history and everybody that has coached here has had unparalleled success.”
