It’s been a long road for Chris Jans, who has started a new chapter in his life by accepting the position as the head men’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University.
Jans was officially introduced as the Falcons’ 16th head coach Tuesday afternoon.
“My responsibility is to win championships here. That’s all I’ve ever done,” Jans said during his press conference. “I can’t promise you when it’s going to happen, but it’s going to happen. “I can’t wait for the day when we are celebrating wins, and singing Ay Ziggy Zoomba.’’

Chris Jans is the new men’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University. Jans will have a six-year contract at $325,000 a year with the Falcons.
He replaces Louis Orr, Bowling Green’s coach for the past seven years.
Jans was most recently the associate head men’s coach at Wichita State.
“Chris Jans is doing the things that we want to do at BGSU,” said Chris Kingston, Bowling Green’s athletics director said. “He is a championship coach, a championship recruiter, and a championship person. He is absolutely the right fit for Falcon men’s basketball.
‘‘He has the coaching expertise and personality to immediately ignite the players and fan base, as we begin the new era of men’s basketball in the Stroh Center under his leadership.’’
A press conference is planned for noon on Tuesday in the upper concourse of the Stroh Center. The event will be open to the general public.

Ryan Carpenter is ready for his next challenge.
The junior center and captain on the Bowling Green Falcon hockey team signed a pro contract Monday with the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks.
Carpenter signed a two-year entry level contract that will start next season. He will play this season under an amateur tryout agreement.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder will report this week to the Worcester Sharks, San Jose’s American Hockey League affiliate.
He’ll finish the season at Worcester and probably attend their summer prospects camp in advance of San Jose’s training camp next season.
“It definitely helped my decision that I’ll be graduating in the spring, that was really one of the factors that it came down to ... I got my degree,” said Carpenter, a 23-year-old who will graduate in May.
Carpenter, who has a 3.9 grade-point average in accounting, will graduate in just three years after taking classes for college credit while at Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Fla.

There is no question that the transition from the Dave Clawson-era of Bowling Green football to the Dino Babers-era will take some time and patience.
An entirely different offensive philosophy from Babers meant that the returning Falcons had to work quickly to learn the new system.
Babers and the rest of his staff saw their most updated body of work Saturday morning in the team’s first scrimmage of spring practice. It was BG’s first outside practice of the spring session.
“It was great to have the space and to get to work in the Doyt for the very first time,” Babers said.
“It’s been a long haul, and the weather has been really rough this year, but it was fantastic to get outside for the very first time. I think the guys really appreciated it,'' he said.
Aside from the players and Babers being excited to get outside, what stood out most was the offensive tempo.
The Falcons ran 120 plays in about 1½ hours, which is still slow by Babers’ standards. “That’s behind pace for us,” he said. The displeasure with the speed became evident when Babers shouted to the sidelines during a team huddle asking what was taking so long.
“We were not Falcon Fast today,” he said. “… We’ve got to get the team to speed up and we’ve got to get the officials to move a little faster and everything will be great.”
