Oklahoma Athletic Director Joe Castiglione is one of the new College Football Playoff selection committee members. "We're delighted that they will be joining the committee".

Lott played football at USC before he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1981.

Castiglione, who has served three terms as chair of the Big 12 Board of Athletic Directors, has developed into an OU icon since taking over his current position in 1998, overseeing the football program's resurgence after hiring Bob Stoops, then ushering in Lincoln Riley's era last offseason.

Hatfield was a head coach at Air Force, Arkansas, Clemson, and Rice.

He is also on the Board of Directors for the college football award with his namesake, the Lott IMPACT Trophy, which is given to the nation's best player in character and athletic performance.

Stansbury, a former Georgia Tech linebacker, was named AD at his alma mater in 2016.

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 will be the third chair of the CFP selection committee, succeeding Texas Tech director of athletics Kirby Hocutt.

The College Football Playoff selection committee is always under the microscope and, while a place inside the group would be an impressive accomplishment, it comes with real responsibility. The Arkansas graduate was a defensive back on the 1964 national championship team.
