OSU President Johnson joins College Football Playoff Board of Managers


Ohio State University President Kristina M. Johnson has been named to the College Football Playoff Board of Managers.

The board is made up of presidents and chancellors from the 10 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences and independent Notre Dame. Johnson will represent the Big Ten Conference, replacing Penn State University President Eric Barron.

“As someone who was afforded significant academic opportunities as a result of my participation in sports, I have long recognized the importance of collegiate athletics and championed access to them for every student who desires it,” Johnson said. “I am proud to have played a key role in preserving the 2020 Big Ten Conference fall season at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic and am looking forward to continuing my advocacy and working with the other presidents and chancellors on the College Football Playoff Board of Managers.”
