BOONE, N.C. (AP) -Houston Fancher is out as coach at Appalachian State after nine seasons.
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.
