New Mexico State hires Wichita State assistant Chris Jans to replace Paul Weir
Jans was previously the head coach at Bowling Green
A formal announcement is expected soon.
A press conference is tentatively scheduled for later Monday.
Jans agreed to a four-year contract that will average $275,000 a year plus incentives, a source told CBS Sports. The 48-year-old was previously the head coach at Bowling Green, where he went 21-12 in 2014-15 before being in a bar was given to school officials. Wichita State's Gregg Marshall subsequently rehired Jans -- he'd previously worked for Marshall from 2007-2014 -- in an administrative role in 2015 and then promoted him earlier this month when Greg Heiar left for LSU. New Mexico State assistant Jesse Bopp was the other finalist, a source told CBS Sports.
Jans is replacing Paul Weir.
Weir left last week to coach New Mexico.
