POTEAU, Okla. (AP) -- One day after longtime Carl Albert State College President Joe E. White announces his retirement, school regents name Brandon Webb as the college's president-elect.

Brandon Webb will earn $99,500 annually in his new job and be able to use a home and car owned by the college.

Webb currently is associate general counsel for the Oklahoma Education Association.
