BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Bowling Green State University has hired Wichita State assistant Chris Jans as its new head coach, replacing the fired Louis Orr.

Jans has been Wichita State's associate head coach since 2011-12. He helped guide the Shockers to three straight NCAA appearances and to an unbeaten record and No. 2 ranking this season before a loss to Kentucky on Sunday. He spent seven years at WSU.

Orr was fired March 11 after seven years. The Falcons went 12-20 this season.

Jans also has been an assistant at Illinois State, Idaho, Grand View (Iowa) and Elmhurst (Ill.). He was a head coach at Kirkwood (Iowa) Community College, winning a junior-college national championship in 1997-98, in addition to Independence (Kansas) CC, Howard (Texas) College and Chipola (Fla.) JC.
