Lloyd Carr, Oregon AD added to playoff selection committee

Alabama celebrates its 2016 FBS championship.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens and former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr are among the four new additions to the College Football Playoff selection committee.

College Football Playoff Executive Director Bill Hancock announced Thursday that Mullens, Carr, former Southern Mississippi coach Jeff Bower and former Central Michigan coach and athletic director Herb Deromedi will be added to the 12-member committee starting next season. They will serve three-year terms.

The new members will replace Southern California athletic director Pat Haden, former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne, former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese and former Air Force Academy superintendent Mike Gould.

Last week, Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt was chosen as the new chairman of the selection committee, replacing Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long.

Carr coached Michigan from 1996-2007, leading the Wolverines to their last national title in 1997.

Deromedi spent 38 years at Central Michigan and retired in 1993 as the winningest coach in Mid-American Conference history, with a 110-55-10 record. He was athletic director at Central Michigan from 1994-2006.

Mullens has been athletic director at Oregon since 2010 and is a graduate of West Virginia.
