Kansas coach Bill Self dismisses ‘narrative’ that promo video was aimed at NCAA

University of Kansas basketball coach Bill Self dismissed the idea that he was sending a message to the NCAA by wearing an Adidas shirt and gold chain with a dollar sign attached to it in a video to promote the university’s annual basketball kickoff event. 

“I do not like the narrative that has been said concerning that with me, but I also understand I can’t control what the media writes or their opinions,” Self said at KU’s media day Wednesday (via the The Kansas City Star). “I do know and people that know me know that’s not factually true in any way shape or form.”

Kansas invited rapper Snoop Dogg to perform at the “Late Night at the Phog” event Friday, just days after Kansas was hit with a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, which included charges of lack of institutional control and failure to comply with coaching responsibility standards in regard to alleged payments Adidas representatives made to players.

In the 35-minute concert, Snoop Dogg, performing with female pole-dancers, used unfiltered lyrics and had a money cannon that sent fake $100 bills with the rapper’s face and marijuana leaves on them into the crowd, which included recruits and players.
