One of college basketball's elite coaches will be staying in Lawrence, Kansas. The University of Kansas announced today that head men's basketball coach Bill Self has signed a new contract that will keep him a Jayhawk until the 2021-2022 season.

Self won the 2008 national championship with Kansas, the high point of a period of consistent success under his watch. In nine years with Self, Kansas has won eight straight Big 12 regular season titles and appeared in the Final Four twice, including the 2012 NCAA championship game.

Self's new contract will pay him $3.856 million per year, an increase of $480,000 over his previous contract, which ran until 2018.
