Jim Fox new APP basketball head coach

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT JIM FOX
“Jim was a significant factor in our success and will be a superb addition to the Appalachian State program. He has a clear understanding and respect for what Appalachian State represents after having played against them through the years. I was thoroughly impressed with Charlie Cobb and the search process. Jim is fortunate to work with Charlie. We will miss Jim, but I’m certain he will write a similar story of success for Appalachian State as he did at Davidson.”
— Davidson head coach Bob McKillop

“Coach Fox is a great leader that knows how to connect with his players both on and off the court. He knows the game, puts the time in to make himself better and will get the most out of each player he coaches. He is a guy that I keep in touch with to this day because of how much he pushed me on the court and also genuinely cared about me. App State is getting a gem.”
— Golden State Warriors guard and NBA All-Star Stephen Curry

“I’m really happy for Jim. He’s a guy that has worked tirelessly to do his part in helping make Davidson what it is today. He’s bright and clearly understands what it takes to be successful. App State hit a home run with Jim Fox.”
— Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens

“Jim Fox is ready. He’s worked his way up the ladder by wearing many different hats in the Davidson program. Coach McKillop does a tremendous job of preparing his assistant coaches to become head coaches. Jim has been very successful as a recruiter, as a teacher, as a game coach, and he’s ready for this great opportunity at Appalachian State.”
— Elon head coach Matt Matheny

Interesting looks like Fox was to McKillop what Byington was for Cremins.

So basically everyone thinks he will be our shining star. Good with that.
Never know going from associate hc to hc, but sounds real promising.

The APR concerns me more than even the won/loss percentage.
Got to concentrate on that before anything else. Never heard of an
App State team being in such bad shape that way.

RE: Jim Fox new APP basketball head coach
We may be in trouble pretty soon with that, and I hate it for Coach Fox as he had absolutely nothing to do with it. However, if he recruits the type of kids he did at Davidson, he'll have us back in good academic shape in no time. That's part of why I really like the hire. If we can recruit kids as smart on the court as they are off the court like Davidson has, we'll be just fine.

At first I was underwhelmed as I thought Matt McMahon's resume was as strong if not stronger. But the more I am reading and learning about Fox the more I like the hire.

I'm pretty thrilled with it. He seems to be completely all in and hungry. Already has us as his background on twitter, with the game against Davidson no less! I've just got a good feeling about him. Who knows, I could be completely wrong, but we have no where to go but up.

Its hard to believe that just a handful of years ago we knocked off a CUSA, SEC and ACC team to win the San Juan Shootout and get an at large to the NIT. Also beat a Steph Curry led Davidson squad. Many pundits thought we were one of the first four out for an at large to the NCAA's. I feel as quick as it dropped we can get it back with the right leadership and a couple good recruiting classes.
