Weis, Self, Henrickson confirmed for KU KickOff at Corinth Square

Bill Self was among the featured pep rally speakers at the 2011 KU KickOff. This year he’ll be joined by new football coach Charlie Weis.

He’s got three Super Bowl rings from his time with the New England Patriots. He spent five years in the highest pressure job in college football. And on August 17, he’ll be in Prairie Village.

Freshly minted University of Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis will make his first appearance at the annual KU KickOff pep rally at Corinth Square August 17, the KU Alumni Association has confirmed. Weis will be joined by perennial favorites Bill Self, head men’s basketball coach, and Bonnie Henrickson, head women’s basketball coach.

The event is scheduled to run 6 to 10 p.m. with live music starting at 8 p.m.

On account of the substantial renovations under way at Corinth, the main stage for the event will be moved from its traditional location on the east side of the shopping center to the south parking lot, directly west of Commerce Bank.
