Chris Jans talks absence, power outage ahead of contest with New Mexico | #teacher | #children | #kids

LAS CRUCES — New Mexico State head coach Chris Jans was in the same boat as thousands of viewers watching the Aggies’ game against New Mexico on television when the Pan American Center lost power Tuesday night. 

Jans, who did not coach in Tuesday’s game against UNM due to Covid-19 protocols, had done what he could to replicate his normal game-day routine while he was away from the team. In his weekly press conference Sunday, he shared his thoughts and  experiences while he was sidelined for 10 days and his impressions of the team during his absence. He also said he is in great health after missing more than a week.

He said he shaved, showered and went through some of his typical regimine before a game Tuesday even though he wasn’t going to be present, but he felt compelled to do what he could to recreate his normal game-day experience.

He traded his normal suit for pajamas and his folding chair on the bench for a more comfortable seat in his living room and prepared to chart every individual play. He kept his laptop next to him, just in case something happened to his TV or anything unexpected happened.
