BOONE, N.C. (AP) - Buzz Peterson has changed his mind and is returning for a second stint coaching Appalachian State.

The school announced on Wednesday that Peterson has accepted the job, three weeks after initially turning it down. He'll replace Houston Fancher, who was fired last month.

Peterson went 79-39 in four seasons at ASU between 1996-2000.

Peterson is best known for being Michael Jordan's college roommate at North Carolina. He was fired by Tennessee in 2005 in his only major coaching job.

Peterson later coached at Coastal Carolina before Jordan hired him in 2007 to be director of player personnel with the Charlotte Bobcats.

The Mountaineers went 13-18 last season. Their last NCAA tournament appearance came under Peterson in 2000.
