Bill Self is one of the top coaches in college basketball today, and with 16 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances at three different schools over the last 16 years he is making the case that he is one of the top college coaches in the history of the game. However, despite his unprecedented success on the court, Self also has a reputation for being a great ambassador for college basketball in regards to his relationship with the fans and the community.
On Tuesday, September 30 Self made an appearance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City basketball program’s 2nd annual Roos Basketball Tip-Off Dinner as the event’s keynote speaker. During his speech Self talked about his career in basketball and lessons he’s learned both on and off the court that have allowed him and his team’s to reach their goals year after year.
Following his speech Self joined UMKC head coach Kareem Richardson to meet with fans during an VIP access event. During the VIP access event he signed autographs and talked with fans about the upcoming Jayhawks’ season. It’s always good for fans to get to know the head ball coach, and to see a side of him they do not usually get to see when he is on the sidelines.
Heading into the 2014-15 season, Self is confident that the Jayhawks will continue to be successful through hard work and doing things the right way. Although they lost their star guard, Andrew Wiggins, who was the number 1 overall pick in last year’s NBA Draft, the team has reloaded with talent and looks to make another deep run in the NCAA tournament next March.
