Kanas basketball coach Bill Self is officially a Hall of Famer.
On Friday, his induction into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame kicked off the festivities. At 54-years old and still coaching one of the most dominant programs in College Basketball, he has plenty of time to add to an already legendary resume.
Self has led the Jayhawks to 13 consecutive Big 12 Championships, two Final Four appearances, and a National Championship. Under his watch, the Jayhawks are considered one of the favorites to cut down the nets every season.
In his speech, Self thanked a number of coaches who helped get him to where he is. He thanked his family and the universities that gave him the opportunity to perfect his craft en route to being one of the most revered coaches of contemporary football.
Self is one of 11 inductees to the Hall of Fame this year, and becomes the fifth Kansas coach to be enshrined. There have only been eight coaches in the history of the program. Needless to say, Kansas has done a good job vetting their future coaches.
