Chris Jans fills out rest of new Mississippi State staff, including retaining long-time assistant
Chris Jans has rounded out his staff at Mississippi State with a mix of coaches who have been with him for a while, and a long-time Bulldog assistant.
David Anwar will reunite with Jans and James Miller, while 12-year MSU assistant coach George Brooks will be retained on-staff. Anwar has coached at New Mexico State, North Texas, Nebraska, UTEP and Arkansas Fort Smith. He’s coached at least 5 seasons at the most recent 3 stops. Jans earlier in the week announced Miller’s hire, as he also comes from New Mexico State.
“Coach Anwar is a tireless worker armed with a resume of production,” Jans said. “He is an expectational relationship builder with student-athletes and anyone he meets. David is a quality person who is well-respected by his peers because of his character and his integrity. Coach Anwar was a valuable member of our program at New Mexico State from day one and will continue to be as he transitions to the Bulldogs.”
“George Brooks is a Bulldog,” Jans continued. “He is synonymous with Mississippi State basketball, and we are thrilled he will continue with our staff as we move forward. I have quickly learned how revered and how respected Coach Brooks is across the state of Mississippi and the country. George has been invaluable as we mold our program to fit our vision.”
