Ronnie Lott added to College Football Playoff Selection Committee

Report: Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione to serve on College Football Playoff committee

Castiglione, who has led the Sooners' athletic department since 1998, has served on the NCAA baseball committee, and was the chair of the men's basketball committee (2015-16).

Sources told ESPN on Tuesday that Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione also would be added to the committee.

The appointment of Castiglione, Stansbury and Stricklin continues the CFP's odd custom of having sitting athletic directors serve as committee members.

Hatfield has a career record of 168-140-4 as a head coach at Air Force, Arkansas, Clemson and Rice.

Lott, 58, was an All-American defensive back at USC in 1980 before spending 14 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the San Francisco 49ers.

One of the biggest things that stands out is that there is still little representation for Group of 5 schools, which have yet to get respect from the committee.


Boivin is a former sportswriter for the Arizona Republic and now works for Arizona State's Journalism School and recently became the first female journalist to be elected to the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame. He was named the College Football Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.

Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin's job description has grown with a new important role.

The new members undoubtedly have the experience to be on the committee, but the Playoff could have done a lot more to try and fix one of its ongoing criticisms.

Along with these additions, Oregon AD Rob Mullens will be taking over the chair position from Texas Tech AD Kirby Holcott. "The selection committee meets in-person beginning late in the football season and produces a ranking of the top 25 teams each week, leading up to its final selections".
