Kansas Coach Bill Self to Miss Big 12 Quarterfinal

Defending NCAA Champion and Kansas Jayhawks coach Bill Self will miss the Big 12 quarterfinal opener against West Virginia with an unknown illness, as reported by ESPN.

The Jayhawks are currently ranked third in the latest AP Top 25 Poll with a record of 25-6. They are 13-5 in the conference after a recent loss to Texas. There is currently no update on when Self could rejoin the team or how long he will be away. 

Kansas won the National Championship one year ago, defeating the University of North Carolina, 72-69. Self is in his 20th season with Kansas and entered this season with a 556-124 record (81.8 percent). In his time at Kansas, he has averaged 29.3 wins per year. 

Many predictions have Kansas once again as a No. 1 seed entering the NCAA tournament. 

We will continue to monitor any news regarding Coach Self but for now, Assistant Norm Roberts will serve as the interim coach. 

Kansas will face West Virginia today at 2 p.m. EST.
