Bill Self to sign copies of new book

October 12, 2008


Bill Self, head coach of Kansas men's basketball, will sign his new book, "Bill Self: At Home in the Phog," from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday at the KU Bookstores, level two of the Kansas Union. The event is free and open to the public.

With the help of author John Rohde, Self and those who know him best offer an inside look at his journey into becoming one of the game's most respected and most sought-after coaches. Self tells how he is living the dream-not only is he a head coach, he was also selected to be the steward of what James Naismith and Phog Allen created for Kansas basketball. The book captures the excitement of reaching the pinnacle -leading the Jayhawks to a national title. Self shares minute-by-minute details of the contest that sent KU to the national title game and offers insight into one of the greatest national championship comebacks ever.

The autobiography, "Bill Self: At Home in the Phog," is available for purchase at the KU Bookstores and through Self's foundation's Web site, Proceeds from the book's sales will benefit the Assists Foundation.

Hey Bill, isn't $1,750 per hour enough? Must be hard making ends meet on that kind of paltry salary. Harvesters, here in KC, has some food for you if you need it. Oh, professors at KU average right at $45 per hour. Sounds fair to me. Maybe your foundation could help supplement their salaries, though some of them have several hundred kids to teach and you have what on a team 15-20? Go KU.
