Bowling Green fired former Wichita State assistant coach Chris Jans on Thursday, citing public conduct failure in a news release.
Jans was, according to Zac Jackson of FoxSports Ohio, involved in an incident at a bar in March after Bowling Green’s season ended on March 21. According to Jackson, the incident involved inappropriate behavior toward one person in the bar and was filmed by someone with a cell phone. There are no changes pending, according to Jackson.
“Bowling Green State University has terminated the employment of men's head basketball coach Chris Jans,” the university said in a news release. “Jans was terminated following an investigation into his recent public conduct. The University concluded that Jans' public conduct failed to meet his obligations as a head coach and the expectations that BGSU Athletics has for its coaches. The university will have no further comment on this personnel matter.”
Bowling Green went 21-12 in Jans’ lone season as coach and played in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.
He joined WSU coach Gregg Marshall’s first staff in 2007 and earned a promotion to associate head coach in 2011. Bowling Green hired him after the 2013-14 season.
