OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Former Secretary of State Glenn Coffee has been named the new general counsel for the State Chamber of Oklahoma.

The chamber said Wednesday that Coffee's legal and legislative background make him a good fit for the position. As general counsel, he will provide legal advice for the chamber and serve as a member of its board of directors.

The group lobbies for pro-business reforms and initiatives throughout the state.

Coffee served as the first Republican leader of the Oklahoma Senate and was appointed secretary of state in 2010 after term limits forced him to leave his Senate seat. Coffee announced his resignation as secretary of state last year.
