Lester hopes to keep Western Michigan rolling

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) Tim Lester knows he's got a tough act to follow at Western Michigan.

But Lester, who was hired to succeed P.J. Fleck as coach of the Broncos football team on Friday, says he'll keep what his players like from the old regime while putting his own stamp on things.

"I'll do it my way, but the results need to be the same," Lester said at an introductory news conference Saturday at Western Michigan. "(Players) need to know I care about them as a person, a student, that they're getting out into the community to grow their character. (Fleck) had a different way of doing it.
