Chris Langan has been Felician's head baseball coach since the 2004 season. He has led the Golden Falcons to 12 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Tournament berths and two championships, along with four NCAA Regional appearances. His recent teams have achieved an unprecedented degree of sucess at the University.

In 2019, Felician (31-23, 24-8) won its fourth consecutive conference or division regular-season championship, capturing the CACC South Division by a three-game margin. It was the sixth such title overall for the Golden Falcons, including the fifth under Langan. Felician, which was chosen for the NCAA Tournament on an at-large basis, enjoyed its fifth 30+ win season, all in the last six years. The previous year, the Golden Falcons were 30-25 overall, won the CACC South with a 25-7 league record, and reached the CACC Tournament finals.

The Golden Falcons established program records for wins (35) and winning percentage (.700) in 2017. While posting a 20-2 conference mark, Felician made its first appearance in the national rankings, rising as high as No. 16 in the NCBWA poll, and set a program record with an in-season regional rank of No. 2. The standards for wins and percentage had just been set in 2016, when the Golden Falcons were 34-21. Both of those teams claimed the CACC regular-season title and reached the NCAA Tournament, and the 2016 squad also seized the conference tournament crown.Langan_Chris_daughters

Langan has won the CACC Coach of the Year award four consecutive times, following the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 campaigns.

Langan has a school-record 411 victories in his 16 years with Felician. He has coached 85 all-conference, 34 all-region (including three region Players of the Year), and six all-America honorees. Twenty-two of his former players have signed professional contracts, and five have been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. In June 2018, former Golden Falcon Jerry Vasto reached the major leagues with the Colorado Rockies.

Felician burst onto the regional scene with its breakout 2014 season. The Golden Falcons won the program's first CACC championship and earned its first NCAA berth, eventually finishing 30-20. After 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.

Three of his former players -- Mike Rooth, Frank Quintana and Dennis Hulse -- are members of the Felician Athletics Hall of Fame.

Langan was promoted to head coach after serving as a Golden Falcon assistant in 2002 and 2003, 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 during 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.  He is the chair of the CACC Baseball Coaches' Committee and a member of the Felician Beefsteak Dinner and Athletics Hall of Fame Committees. From 2015-17 he served a three-year term on the NCAA Division II East Regional Advisory Committee. He resides in Matawan and has three daughters -- Chelsea, Ava and Ella.
