College Football Playoff announces new member to Selection Committee
Georgia State Athletics Director Charlie Cobb is the newest member of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, Bill Hancock, the executive director of the CFP announced.
Cobb will serve the final year of the term of Terry Mohajir, who recently left Arkansas State to be the new athletics director at Central Florida.
“Charlie will be a welcomed addition to our committee,” Hancock said. “His knowledge and experience as a former student-athlete as well as his leadership of the football programs at Appalachian State and Georgia State have prepared him well for this role. As we welcome Charlie to the group, we also want to take this opportunity to thank Terry for his good spirit and positive influence during his two years as a member of the committee and wish him all the best in his new role at UCF.”
Cobb has been the Georgia State AD since 2014. During his time in Atlanta, the school has opened multiple new facilities, including a $50 million transformation of Turner Field, the former Atlanta Braves stadium, into the home of Georgia State football. On the field, the Panthers made their first-ever appearance in a bowl game in 2015 and bowl berths in four of the last six years.
Cobb was a four-year letterman as an offensive lineman on the football team at NC State, where he graduated from in 1990.
The CFP selection committee is responsible for selecting the top four teams in the Playoff and assigning them to semifinal games as well as ranking the other top 25 teams.
