Bowling Green Basketball Coach Chris Jans Fired for Public Conduct, Allegedly Arising from a Bar Incident

By Jason Lisk

Bowling Green head coach Chris Jans, who had 21 wins in his first season with the school, was fired today, as originally reported by Pete Thamel. It is an unexpected–and non-basketball-move. Bowling Green had perhaps their best season in the last 12 years in Jans’ first and only year. Jans was a hot assistant who worked with Gregg Marshall at Wichita State before taking the Bowling Green job.

The details of the conduct will certainly come out, but it appears to stem from a bar incident from a couple of weeks ago.

There are rumors of a cell phone video of whatever incident prompted Bowling Green to take this action.
