Ole Miss legend and a college football icon Archie Manning is leaving the College Playoff Committee due to possibly needing another knee surgery.
Manning brought a great deal of knowledge to the committee and is a great ambassador to college football, executive director Bill Hancock told ESPN NFL reporter Chris Mortensen.
The committee that was at 13 people will step down to 12 while Manning takes a leave of absence to have more work done on his knee, which he had surgery on earlier this year. If the even-numbered committee’s votes come to a 6-6 draw, revotes will continue until someone changes a vote.
Remaining members of the committee are Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long, WIsconsin-Madison athletics director Barry Alvarez, former superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy Lieutenant General Mike Gould, USC athletics director Pat Haden, former NCAA Executive Vice President Tom Jernstedt, West Virginia athletics director Oliver Luck, Nebraska-Lincoln athletics director Tom Osborne, Clemson athletics director Dan Radakovich, Stanford professor Condoleezza Rice, former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese, former USA Today reporter Steve Wieberg and former head coach Tyrone Willingham.
