Bill Self could be roaming the sideline at Allen Fieldhouse well into the next decade.
The Kansas basketball coach agreed to a restructured contract Friday that extends through the 2021-22 season and includes a raise to $3.857 million per year. Self’s previous deal, worth $3.376 million annually, would have run through June 2018.

Self is coming off his second appearance with Kansas in the Final Four. He led the Jayhawks to the 2008 national title and lost to Kentucky in the championship game in April.

”I know there are a lot of great jobs out there, but I certainly don’t think it takes long to call roll for the best of the best, and I’m fortunate to have one of those, ” Self said. ”I can’t imagine myself coaching anywhere else as long as the people at Kansas want me to be here.”

Self’s new contract includes bonus provisions of $50, 000 for conference regular-season titles, $25, 000 for winning the conference tournament, $100, 000 for earning AP coach of the year, $150, 000 for reaching the Final Four and $200, 000 for winning the national championship.

”I felt great about my previous contract that we redid in ’08, and of course, extending it four more years is terrific, ” Self said. ”I don’t know if it’s anything I’m going to be giddy about or lay awake thinking, `Hey, I have a contract through 2022.’ Hopefully if you’re doing a good job, they’ll want you around, and if you don’t do a good job, they won’t want you around.”
