Reports: WSU's Jans hired as New Mexico State's head coach

Posted: Updated:

Just four days after being promoted to associate head coach, Wichita State's Chris Jans is set to take over as the head coach at New Mexico State, according to multiple reports.

Jans was an assistant coach on Gregg Marshall's first WSU staff in 2007-08 and the pair worked in tandem for seven seasons, laying the foundation for the most successful stretch of basketball in Shocker history. 

Following WSU's 2011 NIT Championship, Jans was elevated to Associate Head Coach and held the title for three seasons, during which WSU won two Missouri Valley Conference titles, played in a Final Four and recorded the first 35-0 start in NCAA history.
Jans left Wichita State to become head coach at Bowling Green.   He led the team to a 21-12 record in the 2014-15 season,  but was fired following an investigation into inappropriate behavior for an incident at a bar on the night the season ended.
