Bill Self will not be coaching for the remainder of the Big 12 Tournament, Kansas has announced. The news comes hours after the coach was previously ruled out for KU’s game against West Virginia.
Thursday morning, Kansas announced that Self would not coach the WVU game due to an illness. The latest statement from the school reveals that Self underwent a “standard procedure” after arriving at the emergency department Wednesday night. The school says reports that Self suffered a heart attack are not accurate. Self is expected to make a full recovery.
