Kansas Athletics has taken a first major step towards offsetting financial issues that are ahead with the coronavirus epidemic.
KU announced Monday that men’s basketball coach Bill Self, football coach Les Miles and athletic director Jeff Long would all be taking 10% pay reductions. Those will begin May 1, and are scheduled to last for six months.
Self, in particular, said he would be returning the money in hopes “to help bridge the financial gap” the athletic department will face.
