PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) - Pittsburg State has named Tim Beck as head football coach to replace Chuck Broyles, who retired following his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

University president Steve Scott announced the appointment Wednesday.

Beck is a 1988 Pittsburg State graduate who played defensive back for the Gorillas. He's a longtime assistant to Broyles, including 16 years as offensive coordinator.

Broyles was given a DUI citation in Galena late last month and has pleaded not guilty. He remains on paid administrative leave as Pittsburg State's athletics director.
