08:14 AM ET 10.01 | Four more years will treat Bill Self well, even if he's not sure how it will play at Kansas over the long haul. "I don't know if this helps recruiting or not. I still had six years left (on his old contract)," Self told the Journal-World on Friday after agreeing to a restructured contract that will provide him $53.32 million over a whopping 10 years. "I think it's very generous. I think it's great. Whether it helps recruiting or not, I don't know because I feel like that is not something I'll talk about in the homes." It's a contract designed in part to entice Self to stick around. The 49-year-old, 10th-year Jayhawk coach would receive a lump sum of $6 million if he remains through March 2022.

It appears the Jayhawks know they can't be a power in football, so they are locking Self up to remain a b'ball power. The question is: where there any other buyers?
