After suffering a health scare, the hope was that Kansas' Bill Self would be back on the sideline for the NCAA Tournament.
But that won't be the case on Saturday.
Speaking ahead of the Jayhawks' second round game vs. Arkansas, Self shared that although he's feeling better he will not be coaching vs. the Razorbacks. Saying that he has all the faith in the world in his staff to keep KU going in the right direction.
I'm not gonna coach. We're obviously in great hands with Norm [Roberts] and the staff. I'm feeling tons better. I've gotten my energy back to an extent, sleeping better... We met as a group with doctors and we think its best that we rejoin the team full-speed next week.
The basketball world reacted to Self's announcement on social media.
"Very obviously looking better than the other day. That feels really good. Get well soon Coach!" a fan said.
"'Well I checked my blood pressure every 5 minutes & I know one time we didn't get back on defense or got beat on a back cut it got a little high,'" a user laughingly quoted.
"Solid life advice. Listen to your doctors and medical professionals. None of us do that enough. Do it. Nothing is more important to you and your family than your health. Games will be played. Your health means more."
Looking forward to seeing you back, coach.2023-03-18T21:57:29Z dg43tfdfdgfd
