Appalachian State has fired head coach Jason Capel, sources confirmed to's Gary Parrish on Monday afternoon.

The Twitter account @AppStFeed first reported it early Monday afternoon.

Capel spent four seasons with the Mountaineers, going 53-70 and not reaching the NCAA Tournament. This season was the worst under Capel, as Appalachian State went 9-21 overall, 5-11 in the Southern Conference.

Expect Murray State assistant Matt McMahon to be mentioned with this vacancy, as he was an assistant at App State for 10 seasons before moving to UNCW and Murray State.
