Eastern Iowa native Jans fired at Bowling Green

Posted: Updated:
Bowling Green has fired coach Chris Jans after "an investigation into his recent public conduct," the university said in a statement on Thursday. Jans attended Wapsie Valley High School, played basketball at Loras College and coached at Kirkwood Community College.

Jans led the Falcons to a 21-12 record -- a nine-game improvement -- in his first year at Bowling Green.

    In the statement issued by the athletic department, the university said "Jans' public conduct failed to meet his obligations as a head coach." The university didn't specify what the conduct was.

Assistant Mark Downey is taking over day-to-day operations of the program while a search for a replacement begins.
