Chris Jans, one of the nation’s premier bench bosses, has been chosen to lead the Mississippi State men’s basketball program. The announcement came last Sunday from MSU Director of Athletics John Cohen.
“The Mississippi State Family is thrilled to welcome Chris Jans as our next head coach,” said Cohen. “Coach Jans is a proven leader and winner, who is considered by many to be one of the top coaches in the game. He is a tireless recruiter, brilliant Xs and Os tactician, and his overall resume speaks for itself. We’re pleased to welcome him, his wife Sheri, his son Nick and daughter Maddie to the Bulldog Family.”
Jans was introduced formally on Wednesday at his introductory press conference. Hear what all Coach Jans had to say right here. Video is courtesy of Hail State Athletics.
