KU is flush with cash, paying a 4-year buyout wouldn't be a big deal.

Rolling 5 much more manageable than rolling 7

Obviously we all have a nervous reaction to the idea of a rollover contract, but in reality Self's done a lot more than most coaches – certainly than Hewitt had – to justify it.

I wonder if KU was afraid of UNC stealing their coach again?

They literally have LoIC allegations hanging over their basketball program from the Adidas scandal, their AD and football coach just got fired amidst the sexual misconduct fiasco, and their coach just finished one of the worst seasons in recent history. Of all the years to make this dumbass deal, this is the dumbest.

Self is 58; Hewitt was 41/42
Self won many championships; Hewitt won zero

If Hewitt had had 16 years of Self’s success then I would be in favor of a lifetime contract
