LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has agreed to a new contract that will play him $3.856 million annually through the 2021-22 season.

The school announced the deal Friday. It replaces a previous contract that ran through June 2018.

Self can earn a retention bonus of $876,000 per year, payable in 2015 and 2018. The second retention bonus is replaced in 2019 by an agreement to pay Self a one-time sum of $6 million if he remains the Jayhawks' coach through the 2022 season.

Other perks include bonuses for regular-season and conference tournament titles, Final Four appearances, a national championship and winning AP coach of the year.

Self led Kansas to the 2008 national title. The Jayhawks lost to Kentucky in the championship game in April.
