Indiana State Assistant Headed to BG....

According to the Terre-Haute TribStar, David Ragland will be coming to Bowling Green as a men's basketball assistant.

Ragland is currently an assistant at Indiana State, where he has been for four years.  Before that, he was a head coach at Vincennes University in Indiana, which is an Indiana junior college.  He was successful (44-19) and in that manner, has a background a little bit like Chris Jans.

Indiana State has seen success during Ragland's time there...they did not have a losing season and they won the Missouri Valley title and played in the Big Dance...all things we'd love to be able to say about our program.  His wife has family "near" Bowling Green and he says he has recruited Ohio successfully.

So, that's the first Jans hire.  To me, it looks like someone who fits the Jans mode pretty well.  They coached in the same conference, so there'd be some familiarity going in...

Welcome to the Falcons, coach.
