Former Bowling Green head coach Chris Jans is now working as a consultant with the Wichita State program according to the Wichita Eagle.
Jans was associate head coach at Wichita State ahead of accepting the Bowling Green job in 2014. Jans was fired as head coach at Bowling Green this past spring as a result of complaints to his behavior in a bar near campus.
As a consultant, Jans is able to watch practice and film and is able to consult with the coaching staff only on what he actually observes in practice. NCAA rules prohibit him from providing any instruction or recruiting. Jans cannot talk to coaches during practices or games.
According to the report, Jans will work on a renewable 45-day contract that will pay $10,000.
University of Illinois head coach John Groce announced on Thursday that Leron Black will have surgery on his right knee to repair a torn meniscus and will miss the next four to six weeks.
Black, a high-motored 6’7 power forward, averaged 5.0 points and 4.3 rebounds in 14.3 minutes per contest last season as a freshman. He is expected to be the Illini’s top post player this season.
Groce made the announcement at the Illini’s media day.
Black is scheduled to have surgery on Friday morning.
Injuries have not been kind to the Illini this offseason. Tracy Abrams is out for the season with a torn achilles, and prized freshman Jalen Coleman-Lands has been sidelined with a stress fracture. 6’8 Darius Paul was dismissed from the team.
