IRVING, Texas (AP) - Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long will serve another season as the chairman of the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, announced Long has been re-elected by his fellow committee members to lead the 13-person panel.

Long was responsible for leading the committee’s weekly meetings and being the public face and voice of the committee. He appeared on ESPN to explain the committee’s weekly rankings starting in late October, and held a teleconference with reporters to take questions about the group’s choices.

Hancock said Long conducted the meetings “skillfully.”

Hancock says Long also gave fans insight about committee decisions by answering questions.

Long says he appreciates the committee’s confidence.
