Report: Lloyd Carr to join College Football Playoff committee
The B1G got another voice in the most important room in college football.
According to ESPN’s Heather Dinich, former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr will have a spot on the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2016.
Carr, 70, was reportedly one of six to eight finalists that were being considered for the spot. The committee has to replace USC athletic director Pat Haden, Mike Gould, Mike Tranghese and legendary Nebraska coach Tom Osborne.
The departure of Osborne and addition of Carr would keep the B1G representation at two, joining Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez.
Carr was the head coach at Michigan for 13 seasons until he retired in 2007. The Wolverines won a share of five B1G titles with Carr at the helm, and they were Associated Press national champions in 1997.
