College Football Playoff Press Release | August 19, 2016

Carr will step down from CFP selection committee

  Former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr was set to begin his first year on the committee.

IRVING, Texas – Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the College Football Playoff (CFP), announced Friday that Lloyd Carr will step down from the selection committee.

“This is a difficult decision because I have enjoyed my preparations, and I have the greatest respect for the other committee members and the playoff itself,” said Carr, former head coach at the University of Michigan.  “I regret that health issues will prevent me from executing the responsibilities expected of a committee member.”

Carr was to begin his first year on the CFP selection committee this fall.

“Lloyd will be missed,” Hancock said. “He knows and loves college football, but we all understand.”

The committee will now have 12 members this season. The group will issue its first rankings Tuesday, Nov. 1, and will also issue rankings on four more Tuesdays before Selection Day, Sunday, Dec. 4.
