After less than one year at his position, former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr announced on Friday that he is stepping down from his role on the College Football Playoff selection committee.
Citing health concerns, Carr was heading into his first season on the committee.
“This is a difficult decision because I have enjoyed my preparations and I have the greatest respect for the other committee members and the playoff itself,” said Carr, former head coach at the University of Michigan. “I regret that health issues will prevent me from executing the responsibilities expected of a committee member.”
The committee will continue with 12 members with the first playoff rankings set to be released on Tuesday, November 1.
