Bill Self quickly “replaced” the departed Danny Manning with former Jayhawk Assistant Norm Roberts coming back for a second stint in Lawrence.
Roberts will now be reunited with Self as well as his son Niko, a walk-on for Kansas.
Roberts will provide Kansas with another East Coast recruiter…having lured fan favorite Russell Robinson from “NEW YORK, NEW YORK” in his last season with the Jayhawks in 2003-2004.
Roberts left Kansas to take the head coaching job at St John’s. After being let go at St John’s, Roberts spent a season on Billy Donavan’s staff at Florida.
Welcome back Norm (not Norm Stewart).
