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.
ESPN first reported Willingham would be on the committee, and that Osborne would also be a member.
“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.
