LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kansas coach Bill Self will be awarded the 2013 John R. Wooden Award's "Legends of Coaching" honor.

The announcement was made Wednesday at the Los Angeles Athletic Club Wooden Award Tipoff Luncheon. The award recognizes coaches who exemplify Wooden's high standards of coaching success and personal integrity.

Self will be recognized, along with the men's and women's Wooden Award winners and the Wooden Award All-American teams the weekend of April 11-13.

Self has won eight straight Big 12 regular-season titles and five league tournament championships in his nine seasons with the Jayhawks. His Kansas record is 269-53 and his 83.5 winning percentage is the highest in the program's history. The Jayhawks won the national championship in 2008. Self is in his 19th season as a head coach with a 476-158 (.751 percent) record.
