A Wednesday report from Kirk Wessler, of the Peoria Journal-Star, indicates that Kansas University men's basketball assistant coach Jerrance Howard pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug possession in Illinois' Peoria County last summer.
According to the report, Howard, 34, was arrested in July 2014 for unlawful possession of cannabis and ordered to pay nearly $1,200 in fines and court fees and placed on six months of court supervision, which ends Friday.
KU coach Bill Self is aware of the incident and is in the process of learning more.
"I just found out about this late this afternoon. I'm certainly disappointed," Self told the Journal-World on Wednesday. "But it is a personnel matter and all personnel matters are handled internally. I won't have any further comment until we are able to gather more information."
Howard, a Peoria, Illinois native who played for Self at Illinois and served as a team captain, joined Self's coaching staff at KU prior to the 2013-14 season.
