As legendary coaches across the country depart college basketball for retirement, Bill Self is still at Kansas and now chasing a third national championship.

And despite a mass exodus of players from the 2022 championship team, Self and the Jayhawks once again sit among the title favorites in college basketball betting.

What is Bill Self’s Salary?

Bill Self’s base guaranteed salary is $5.41 million, though he made more than $10 million during the 2021-22 season, his first with a lifetime contract at Kansas.

In 2021, Kansas gave Self a new contract that will pay him handsomely to remain in Lawrence for the remainder of his career. He has a “lifetime contract” that functions as a five-year agreement that automatically adds a new year to the back-end of the contract at the end of each season.

His base salary, with retention bonuses and professional services clauses, comes to a guaranteed annual salary of $5.41 million.

On top of that, Self had $4.5 million of retention pay that was deferred during the pandemic. That brought his total salary for the 2021-2022 season to a whopping $10.2 million.
