Everyone knows Bill Self, ’87, as the highly successful head coach of the KU men’s basketball team, the man who racks up wins and awards on what seems like a daily basis. The team just earned its eleventh straight Big 12 conference title, and this past Monday, Coach Self was selected as the Associated Press Big 12 coach of the year.
But Coach Self is also a proud Life Member of the KU Alumni Association, a parent of two Jayhawks and a great supporter of the University, even though he earned his own college degree from another institution.
“When I came here, I had the impression that we had a very, very strong alumni base that was active, and certainly since I’ve been here I’ve found that to be true,” Coach Self says. “We have something that stands out and makes us different that I think every alumni relates to.”
“In anything, there’s strength in numbers. And with numbers, comes energy.”
