The B1G will have one less voice in the most important room in college football this fall.

The College Football Playoff announced that former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr will be stepping down from his role on 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,” Carr said in a statement. “I regret that health issues will prevent me from executing the responsibilities expected of a committee member.”

Carr was expected to begin his first year on the committee this fall after accepting the role at the end of last season.

The former Michigan coach was the 13th member of the committee. Without Carr, the group will remain at 12 members in 2016.

“Lloyd will be missed,” said Executive Director of the College Football Playoff Bill Hancock. “He knows and loves college football, but we all understand.”

It isn’t clear if there’s something specific that’s ailing the 71-year-old Carr. He originally replaced former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne, who served on the board for the first two seasons of the new system.

The B1G will be represented by Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez.
