Fox named Appalachian State hoops coach

Boone, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Appalachian State has named Jim Fox its new head men's basketball coach, the school announced Tuesday.

Fox arrives after a successful 13-year stint as an assistant with Davidson and becomes the 16th head coach in program history.

"I'm extremely grateful to Chancellor Dr. Ken Peacock, Chancellor-elect Dr. Sheri Noren Everts, the Board of Trustees and [athletic director] Charlie Cobb for the opportunity to lead the Appalachian State men's basketball program," Fox said. "In addition, I'd like to thank Coach [Bob] McKillop and Davidson College, especially the players, for making this dream a reality. Over the past 13 years, I've been very fortunate to be a part of an institution with a rich academic and basketball tradition. I look forward to helping restore as well as build a program that achieves excellence in every regard."

The 40-year-old Fox had been an assistant at Davidson under Bob McKillop from 2001-12, then was promoted to associate head coach for the past two seasons. He helped guide the Wildcats to 10 national postseason berths, including six NCAA Tournament selections.

"We're very excited to welcome Coach Fox to the Appalachian family," ASU director of athletics Charlie Cobb said. "He is well-respected across the country and his winning pedigree speaks for itself. However, what really made him stand out in the search process is his commitment to building a winning men's basketball program at Appalachian State. App Nation wants a consistent winner in men's basketball and we believe that Coach Fox is the right choice to not only win but do so with student-athletes that will represent Appalachian the right way on and off the court."
