BOWLING GREEN, Ohio — Bowling Green has fired coach Chris Jans after “an investigation into his recent public conduct,” the university said in a statement on Thursday.

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

The Falcons went 1-1 in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament after an 11-7 mark in the Mid-American Conference.

In the statement issued by the athletic department: “Jans’ public conduct failed to meet his obligations as a head coach.”

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