NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -San Jose State's Dick Tomey took over Tuesday as president of the American Football Coaches Association, replacing Tyrone Willingham.
Coaches elected Tomey during a lunch at their annual convention here. Willingham had served as president for the past year of the group with more than 10,000 members.
Tomey had been first vice president of AFCA, which was founded in 1922.
He called becoming president a thrill since he could remember his first trip to the AFCA convention, riding in the back of a station wagon with six other coaches in 1964.
``When you achieve an honor such as this, all those memories start coming back,'' Tomey said. ``To be the president of the AFCA for 2009 is very humbling.''
Larry Kehres of Mount Union College takes over as first vice president with Rob Ash of Montana State second vice president and Oregon coach Mike Bellotti third vice president.
Bobby Johnson of Vanderbilt and Turner Gill of Buffalo were elected to the board of trustees after leading their teams to bowl games this season.
io State's Jim Tressel, Mack Brown of Texas, Lee Owens of Ashland, Wake Forest's Jim Grobe, Bill Cronin of Georgetown in Kentucky, Lou Tepper of Indiana in Pennsylvania, Frank Solich of Ohio, Randy Edsall of Connecticut and Rob Ianello of Notre Dame.
