Paul Finebaum says he doesn’t trust dishonest CFP selection committee chair Rob Mullens
Paul Finebaum has a gripe with the College Football Playoff selection committee, and that’s with the person currently leading it.
Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens is in his second season serving as the chairman of the CFP selection committee. And during “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Thursday, Finebaum shared why he doesn’t think Mullens holding that position is a good thing.
“I frankly don’t know if I trust this guy being in charge,” Finebaum said on the show. “I don’t trust him because he’s not honest, and I just think he has an influence on that committee.”
Mullens has served as Oregon’s AD since 2010. He became the third College Football Playoff selection committee chair in 2018, following the stints of Kansas AD Jeff Long and Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt.
As CFP selection committee chair, Mullens is in charge of setting the committee’s agenda, running its meetings and serving as a spokesman.
Finebaum’s strong words could initiate a conversation about the role of the CFP selection committee chair, especially considering it goes to ADs from schools that could be in the running for consideration, such as Oregon this year.
