Barta joined the committee in 2019.

In addition to Mullens, former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer and Robert Morris University president Chris Howard’s terms are up. The three will be replaced by Colorado AD Rick George, former Penn State offensive lineman John Urschel and Wyoming AD Tom Burman. Members of the committee must recuse themselves from discussions involving their own schools.

“Tom, Rick and John each bring an exciting breadth of experiences and expertise to the committee,” CFP spokesperson Bill Hancock said in a statement. “All three will continue the CFP tradition of committee members with high integrity and passion for the sport of college football.

“We are delighted that Gary will serve as chair,” Hancock added. “He was a valuable member of the committee last year and he will be a good leader inside the room and a good spokesperson to let folks know what the committee did and why.”
