BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) Bowling Green has fired coach Chris Jans after ''an investigation into his recent public conduct,'' the university said in a statement on Thursday.

He led the Falcons to a 21-12 record - a nine-game improvement - in his first year at Bowling Green.

The Falcons went 1-1 in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament after an 11-7 mark in the Mid-American Conference.

In the statement issued by the athletic department, the university said ''Jans' public conduct failed to meet his obligations as a head coach.'' The university didn't specify what the conduct was.

Assistant Mark Downey is taking over day-to-day operations of the program while a search for a replacement begins.
