The College Football Playoff announced the outgoing and incoming members of its selection committee on Tuesday, finalizing the group that will rank and determine the teams involved in the national championship race for the 2021 season.
All selection committee members are given three-year terms when they are appointed by the CFP Management Committee, which is made up of the 10 FBS conference commissioners and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick. Each year, the committee sees some turnover among its 13 members, though the turn from 2020-21 will include an extension of Iowa athletic director Gary Barta as the committee chair for another season.
"We are pleased that Gary will return as chair," CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said. "He was a valuable leader as the committee navigated a unique and challenging year. We look forward to him working with the other 12 members in what we hope will be a more traditional season in 2021."
