BYU AD added to NCAA selection committee
INDIANAPOLIS -- BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe is joining the NCAA men's basketball selection committee.
The NCAA said Wednesday that Holmoe will fill the final two years of West Coast Conference Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich's term. Zaninovich is taking over as the Pac-12's chief operating officer next month.
Holmoe was a football star for the Cougars and played on three Super Bowls championship teams with the San Francisco 49ers in the 1980s. He earned a fourth ring as an assistant coach with the 49ers in the 1990s. Holmoe served as California's head coach from 1997 through 2001 before returning to his alma mater in July 2001 as an associate athletic director. A little less than four years later, he was promoted to AD.
Utah State athletic director Scott Barnes is next year's committee chairman.
