Conroy Not Going to Boone (Updated: It's Buzz)

For post #101 (and second of the day) I thought I'd update the coaching search taking place with our rivals to the west. According to this article in the Charleston Post & Courier, that Citadel coach Ed Conroy will remain the head coach of the Bulldogs.

"It looks good," for Conroy to remain at the military school, said the source.

Conroy, 41, emerged as a candidate at App State after leading the Bulldogs to a 20-13 record and the first postseason tournament in school history last season, his third at his alma mater.

App State officials interviewed Conroy and at least two other candidates last week, according to various reports. Conroy has not commented publicly about the App State job, which has been open since Houston Fancher was fired on March 16.

Appfan must be getting swamped this morning. I couldn't get the site to load in several attempts. I'm sure they will have some choice comments, though.

UPDATE: The Winston-Salem Journal is reporting that former ASU coach, Buzz Peterson, has taken the job and will be introduced at a press conference tomorrow.
