Fulmer has interest in joining selection committee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer says he’s interested in being part of the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Fulmer said Friday he’d like to be considered for the committee that determines which four teams get picked for the playoff that kicks off next year. Fulmer was speaking before a 15th anniversary celebration of Tennessee’s 1998 national championship team to benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The makeup of the selection committee hasn’t been determined, but former administrators and coaches, as well as media members, have been discussed as possible candidates.

Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, who also attended Friday’s event, said he’d rather not be part of a selection committee. Bowden expressed interest in the role last year, but has since changed his mind.
