DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - The conference commissioners who put together the College Football Playoff will not be allowed to serve on the committee that selects the teams that will play in it.
Executive director Bill Hancock says the commissioners are still working on the structure of the selection committee for the new postseason system that starts in 2014. But they have eliminated themselves from consideration.
Hancock says that they are not eliminating the possibility that active athletic directors could serve on the committee, but the focus has been on using former administrators, coaches, and even media members to make up the panel.
Hancock says the commissioners would like the committee to have geographic balance, and each conference will soon submit candidates to be considered. From there, 12-20 will be selected.
