New Mexico State Athletic Department announced Chris Jans will be the new men's basketball head coach.

NMSU lost its head coach earlier in April. Paul Weir was hired to coach the Lobos on April 11.

Jans was an assistant at Wichita State from 2007-2014 before taking the head job at Bowling Green. He was fired from there after admitting to acting inappropriately at a local bar.

Jans said in a news conference Monday that he was embarrassed by what happened at Bowling Green.

"I'm thankful for getting a second chance," Jans said.
