Fairmont, W.Va. (AP) -- Gov. Joe Manchin has appointed two new members to Fairmont State University's governing board to fill vacancies created by an expired term and an abrupt resignation.

Jack Robert "Bob" White, who owns a Fairmont jewelry store, has been appointed along with Bryan Towns, who owns a medical billing company in Fairmont.

Towns replaces Robert Kittle, whose term expired in June.

White replaces former board of governors chairman andy Kniceley.

Kniceley resigned last month after an Oct. 31 argument with an assistant coach over the playing time of Kniceley's son in a university football game.

Kniceley, who is also the publisher of the times West Virginian in Fairmont, apologized to the coach.

Both White and Towns have terms that will expire in 2013.
