Herb Deromedi, winningest coach in MAC history, selected to College Football Playoff Committee


With the rotating vacancies in the Playoff Committee, there are always empty seats at the end of the season. Well, one has been filled by a Mid-American Conference legend. Herb Deromedi has been named to the committee, which selects the Top 25 rankings, New Years Six bowls and the College Football Playoffs. In his tenure at Central Michigan, Deromedi was a coordinator under Roy Kramer, a head football coach for Central Michigan (where he won a national championship in 1974 and won the most games in conference history) and was the athletic director from 1993-2005. Deromedi, a College Football Hall of Famer, still serves an ambassador's role for the CMU athletic department. His term should last for three years. From the release, Deromedi said of the opportunity: "I’m eager to share with the other committee members and hear their viewpoints. That’s what the job entails, to represent football for the entire country, not just one specific area."
