Buzz Peterson has agreed in principle to coach Appalachian State, a source confirmed to

An official announcement is expected Wednesday.

Peterson rejected an offer from Appalachian State earlier this month, at which point the school explored other candidates, among them Ed Conroy of The Citadel. But a source said Peterson never really left the conversation, and that an agreement has been reached to return the former Appalachian State coach to the same school at which he worked from 1996 to 2000.

He has also coached at Tulsa and Tennessee.
