NCAA Basketball: Baylor at Kansas Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Star reports that Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball head coach Bill Self has received a lifetime contract extension earlier this week. It’s a largely unprecedented deal.

From the Star: “The deal is a five-year rolling agreement that automatically adds one year at the conclusion of each season for the rest of Self’s career. It comes while the KU basketball program is under an NCAA investigation alleging major infractions.

Predictably, the national media got a little hot over the matter. Such as below:
