Chris Langan has been Felician's head baseball coach since the 2004 season, leading the Golden Falcons to 10 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Tournament berths and two championships, along with three NCAA Regional appearances. His recent teams have achieved an unprecedented degree of sucess at the University.

In 2017, the Golden Falcons established program records for wins (35) and winning percentage (.700). 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 propram 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 captured the conference tournament crown.

Following both 2016 and 2017, Langan was named the BSN Sports CACC Coach of the Year.

Langan has a school-record 350 victories in his 14 years with Felician. He has coached 72 all-conference, 27 all-region, and four 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 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.

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. He is a member of the Keyport High School Athletics Hall of Fame.

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 recently completed 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.
