Previous College: Kean '98


Chris Langan has been Felician's head baseball coach since the 2004 season, leading the Golden Falcons to nine Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Tournament berths and two championships. His 2016 squad claimed the CACC regular-season and tournament titles and made the program's second NCAA Regional appearance. For his efforts, he was named the BSN Sports CACC Coach of the Year.

Langan has a school-record 315 victories in his 13 years with Felician. He has coached 61 all-conference, 21 all-region, and three all-America honorees. Seventeen of his former players have signed professional contracts, and four have been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

Felician set program records for wins (34) and winning percentage (.618) in 2016. Both marks eclipsed standards set by his 2014 teeam, which won the program's first CACC championship, eventually finishing 30-20. Following that campaign, Langan was voted the Division Ii/III Coach of the Year by the New Jersey Collegiate Baseball Association.

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-league 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 began 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.
