SAN ANTONIO (AP) - With less than an hour of sleep under his
belt, bleary-eyed Kansas coach Bill Self was back in the Alamodome
less than 12 hours after his Jayhawks beat Memphis in overtime to
claim the national championship.
That's where he again faced questions about whether he's
interested in the job at his alma mater. Oklahoma State parted ways
with Sean Sutton on April 1st.
As he has for a week, Self talked of plans to meet with Kansas
officials soon about a contract extension.
The school gave Self a five-year extension last season that
increased his annual compensation to more than 1.3 million dollars
with a chance to make another $350,000 each year if he meets
But Self could likely command far more money from Oklahoma
State, whose billionaire alumnus Boone Pickens gave $165 million to
the Cowboys' athletic department.
