WSU President Kirk Schulz will join the College Football Playoff (CFP) board of managers as the representative of the Pac-12 Conference, the university announced today in a news release.

The CFP is a four-team postseason event that decides which Division I college football program is crowned the national champion. The four teams that compete in the playoff are chosen by the CFP selection committee.

The board of managers helps oversee and develop the CFP’s annual budget, policies and operating guidelines.

“I am looking forward to representing Washington State University and the Pac-12 Conference on the College Football Playoff Board of Managers,” Schulz said in the release. “I look forward to working with my college presidents and chancellors from around the country in ensuring an outstanding College Football Playoff experience for our student-athletes.”

The board consists of 11 members from each of the 10 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences and one representative from the University of Notre Dame.

“We are delighted that Dr. Schulz has joined the board of managers. His knowledge, experience and judgement will make him a terrific member. It is a remarkable group of dedicated individuals, and Dr. Schulz will fit right in,” CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock said in the release.
