As Bill Self’s Jayhawks keep advancing in the NCAA Tournament, the head coach’s contract calls for him to earn several bonuses on top of his already-guaranteed $3 million per year.
Self’s contract includes several provisions that trigger bonus payments for him.
He already has two bonuses in the bag this year. The Big 12 regular season conference title earned him $50,000. And when his team went on a 12-0 run to send North Carolina packing on Sunday, that Final Four berth earned Self another $100,000.
A few other bonuses might be in reach, too. If Self wins The Associated Press’ Coach of the Year award, he gets another $50,000. He won it once before, in 2009, and he has already been named as the Sporting News Coach of the Year this year.
The biggest bonus comes with the biggest prize: If his team goes to New Orleans and wins two more games, Self will earn another $200,000 for a national title.
