Lloyd Carr running for College Football Playoff committee seat

Some major changes are on the horizon for the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Four members of the current committee — Mike Tranghese, Pat Haden, Tom Osborne and Mike Gould — are on the way out, meaning that there will be a number of new faces on the 13-member committee. One of those new faces could be former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr.

It’s being reported that Carr is one of the finalists being considered for one of the open seats. Carr would likely be a voice for the Big Ten on the committee to try and make sure a team or teams from the conference get into the the final four each year. It’s expected that an official decision will come later this month.

Carr would undoubtedly be one of the voices pushing for expansion of the field. He made comments in the past regarding the matter, and thinks it’s only a matter of time.

“We’re down that road now, and I think in the future there’s going to continue to be pressure, just like there was in basketball, to continue to raise the number of teams,” he said in an interview with SiriusXM via NBC Sports.

If selected, Carr would bring 13 years on head coaching experience to the committee. That experience includes a national championship as well as five Big Ten conference championships.
