K-State athletic director replaces Texas AD on CFP committee

·1-min read

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor has been added to the College Football Playoff selection committee, replacing Texas AD Chris Del Conte.

CFP’s announcement Wednesday comes less than a week after Texas and Oklahoma announced they would be leaving the Big 12 to join the Southeastern Conference in 2025.

The 13-member selection committee is comprised mostly of sitting athletic directors along with former players and coaches. Each Power Five conference is represented by an active athletic director.

With Texas in the process of leaving the conference, the Big 12 nominated Taylor to replace Del Conte, the CFP said.

Taylor has been athletic director at Kansas State since 2017. He also served a long tenure as AD at FCS powerhouse North Dakota State and in between was a deputy athletic director at Iowa.

Iowa athletic director Gary Barta will serve as the selection committee chairman for a second consecutive season.
