UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman was one of the last opponents of designing a playoff to end college football’s regular season. Now he’ll be the chairman of a group that helps design its structure.
Bowl Championship Series director Bill Hancock Wednesday appointed Perlman to lead the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee, replacing Virginia Tech’s Charles Steger, whose term is expiring. Perlman was named to the committee itself in June 2012, when a playoff was announced to start in the 2014 season.
“Harvey Perlman cares deeply about college football and will help guide us as we usher in the new playoff structure,” Hancock said. “We appreciate his continued leadership.”
Also on the committee: University of Texas president Bill Powers.
