AP Source: Willingham expected on playoff panel
Question of the Day
Tyrone Willingham, the former coach at Notre Dame, Washington and Stanford, is expected to be on the College Football Playoff selection committee next year, and former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne has also been asked to be part of the panel, a person with knowledge of the process told The Associated Press.
The person spoke Saturday on condition of anonymity because the 12-to-18 member panel being put together by conference commissioners has not been finalized.
“I can’t say anything. I don’t think there’s been anything determined,” Osborne told the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star after the Conrhuskers’ 39-19 victory against Illinois at home Saturday.
BCS executive director Bill Hancock has declined to comment on the committee until it is finalized.
Osborne is one of the most successful coaches in college football history. He won 255 games and three national championships in 25 seasons leading Nebraska. He also was Nebraska athletic director for three years before retiring on Jan. 1.
Willingham went from Stanford to Notre Dame to Washington as head coach from 1995-2005. He had a record of 76-88-1.
Other expected members that have been previously reported are:
_ Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
_Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Gould, the former superintendent of the Air Force Academy.
_Former NCAA vice president Tom Jernstedt.
_Former Mississippi and New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning.
_Former Big East Commissioner Mike Trangehese
_Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long.
