Mississippi St’s Keenum is new CFP Board of Managers chair
STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State President Mark E. Keenum is the new chair of the College Football Playoff Board of Managers.
Keenum was selected after being the Southeastern Conference representative on the board since 2015. The CFP is the four-team playoff that determines the sport’s national championship at the Football Bowl Subdivision level.
The Board of Managers oversees the administrative operations of the College Football Playoff. There are 11 members, including one from each of the 10 FBS conferences and one from Notre Dame.
Keenum said in a statement that the CFP “has made a name for itself over the past four years as a great way to decide the national champion in college football. That’s an important task, and I plan to lead this board in maintaining the integrity of the event.”
