Bowling Green men’s basketball coach Chris Jans was fired for cause this week after a bar incident in Ohio that apparently happened the night his team got smoked by Canisius.

According to documents Deadspin got from the university, Jans — a married father of two — was fired because he “sexually harassed several women while drunk in a bar, slapping one on the butt, pushing another’s head toward his crotch, and calling another a b***h.’ ”

The tipster who alerted the university of the incident said it occurred on March 21, which means Jans’ drunken night followed his team’s 82-59 loss to Canisius in the CIT.

“For whatever reason we just couldn’t get going,” Jans said after the loss, though I guess that applies to the bar as well.
