LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a retired University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor who died after being pulled from a YMCA pool in Lincoln.

Police identified the man as 66-year-old Allan McCutcheon. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that McCutcheon was a University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor and chairman of survey science. He was also a professor of statistics and survey research and methodology at the UNL-Gallup Research Center in Lincoln, and he had been the founding director of that center.

Officials say McCutcheon retired from the university last year but had been around campus often helping his successor.

Police say a lifeguard and other swimmers found the Lincoln man unresponsive Tuesday morning in the Cooper YMCA pool. He was pronounced dead later at a hospital. An autopsy has been ordered.
