Previous College: Kean '98


Chris Langan has been Felician's head baseball coach since the 2004 season, leading the Golden Falcons to seven CACC Tournament berths. His 2014 squad won the program's first CACC championship, made its first NCAA Regional appearance, and set school records for wins (30) and winning percentage (.600). For his efforts, Langan was named the New Jersey Collegiate Baseball Association Division II/III Coach of the Year.

Langan has a school-record 261 victories in his 11 years with Felician. He has coached 51 all-conference, 12 all-region, and two all-America honorees. Fourteen of his former players have signed professional contracts, including 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft selections Scott De Jong and Jerry Vasto.

The 2014 Golden Falcons completed the regular seaoson with a No. 9 ranking in the regional writers' poll before going 3-0 in the CACC playoffs. On May 10, Felician defeated top seed and host Wilmington (Del.) University, 8-3, to capture the league title. The Golden Falcons went on to eliminate defending champion Franklin Pierce University in the NCAA D-II East Regional tournament before bowing out in fourth place.

Langan's 2012 squad captured the CACC regular-season championship and was the runner-up in the conference tournament. In 2006, he guided Felician to a then-record 29 victories, its first in-season regional-ranking, a runner-up finish in the CACC playoffs, and its only ECAC Tournament berth.

Langan was promoted after serving as a Golden Falcon assistant in 2002-03, during which time he was the hitting coach and worked with the catchers and outfielders.

Langan was an all-state honoree at Keyport High School and helped the Red Raiders to a state championship in his junior season. Collegiately, he was a two-time all-CACC performer at Bloomfield College before transferring to Kean University, where he was a key contributor to the Cougars' 1998 NCAA Tournament team. Langan was a non-roster invitee to the Kansas City Royals' major-league spring training in 1999.

Langan owns bachelor's degrees in special education from Kean in 1998 and in social services from Almeda College in 2003.   In 2015, he begins a three-year term on the NCAA Division II East Regional Advisory Committee. He resides in Hazlet with his wife, Danielle, and daughters Chelsea, Ava and Ella.
