Jerrance Howard, an assistant men’s basketball coach at Kansas, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana last summer while in his hometown of Peoria, Ill., the Peoria Journal Star reported on Wednesday afternoon. Howard was charged in July 2014 with unlawful possession of cannabis, a Class B misdemeanor in Peoria County, and was ordered to pay $1,178.26 in fines and was placed on six months of court supervision, according to the report. The six months of court supervision was set to end on Friday. Kansas coach Bill Self told The Star on Wednesday evening that he first became aware of the situation late Wednesday afternoon. Self declined comment beyond saying he was still deciding on a course of action. “It’s an internal matter,” Self said. “It will be handled like all personnel matters.”
