Former Virginia Tech Head Coach Frank Beamer has been selected as one of three new CFB Playoff Selection Committee members to replace Barry Alvarez, Condoleezza Rice and Lloyd Carr. Beamer is currently serving as a Special Assistant to the Athletic Direction at Virginia Tech and is the father of Georgia’s TE and Special Teams Coach Shane Beamer.
“College football has been my life’s work, and I’m really humbled that I can still contribute to the game in this role,” Beamer said in a statement. “Hopefully the rest of the committee will be interested in my perspective. To join a group with so many great minds and such a diverse range of experience, I just want to pull my weight. The committee has an important role, and I’ll do everything asked of me to help rank the best teams in America for the right to compete for the national championship.”
