LAS CRUCES – New Mexico State announced an amendment this week that added an additional year to the contract of men’s basketball coach Chris Jans and an increase to his retention bonus.
Jans contract now runs through the 2022-23 season. His base salary of $290,000 and buyout remains the same, but through private donations over the life of the contract, the retention bonus increased to $216,000.
Jans will receive the retention bonus on Nov. 1. New Mexico State paid Jans a retention bonus of $159,000 after Nov. 1, 2018. Prior to the new amendment in his contract, he would have been paid a retention bonus of $139,000 in November.
