“On behalf of everyone at Pittsburg State University, I want to thank Coach Beck for his tremendous service to his alma mater,” Pitt State athletic director Jim Johnson said. “We are grateful for everything Tim has done to help further the tradition and legacy of Pitt State football. We wish he and his family nothing but the best moving forward.”

A national search has begun to find his replacement.

He had been the team’s head coach since December 2009 when he was hired. Before his appointment as the team’s leader on the field, he was an assistant with the Gorillas for 23 years.

For 16 of those 23 seasons, he was the school’s offensive coordinator.

Beck had been with the program for 33 seasons. In his tenure at the school, the team went 314-85-2, including two national championships.

In addition, the program won 14 Conference Championships. The team also had 20 national playoff appearances with Beck at the school.

The team began with a five-game win streak from Sept. 5 through Oct. 5.

However, over the course of the final weeks of the season, the team went 1-5. The lone win came against Missouri Southern Lions to end the season.

In the Nov. 16 contest, the Gorillas won 65-6. At one stretch, the team went on a five-game losing streak after winning five straight.
