The College Football Playoff announced Monday that Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt will replace former West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck on the selection committee.

Luck resigned from the committee in December after taking a position with the NCAA. Per ESPN:

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby nominated Hocutt to be Luck's replacement.

"I am excited and honored to join the College Football Playoff Selection Committee," Hocutt said in a statement. "I look forward to working with such a distinguished group of individuals in what has instantly become one of our nation's most successful sporting events. I sincerely appreciate the confidence that Commissioner Bowlsby and the CFP management committee have placed in me with this appointment."

Hocutt has ties to more than one school in the Big 12. He played linebacker for coach Bill Snyder at Kansas State, leading the Wildcats in tackles during the 1993 season.
