The school said Monday night that Fancher had resigned, but would be paid through the end of next season, when his contract expires. Fancher was 137-136, but the Mountaineers went 13-18 this season and lost in the Southern Conference tournament quarterfinals.
Fancher was promoted to head coach in 2000 after Buzz Peterson left for Tulsa. Appalachian won a school-record 25 games in 2006-07 and reached the NIT. But the Mountaineers never reached the NCAA tournament under Fancher.
