Lloyd Carr, the legendary former Michigan football coach, is stepping down from the College Football Playoff selection committee due to health reasons.

Lloyd Carr, 71, announced the news today.

"I regret that health reasons will prevent me from executing the responsibilities expected of a committee member," he said in a release.

This was going to be Carr's first year on the College Football Playoff selection committee. He was named to the committee along with Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens, former Southern Miss coach Jeff Bower and former Central Michigan coach Herb Deromedi in January, replacing Mike Gould, Pat Haden, Tom Osborne and Mike Tranghese.

The first College Football Playoff rankings don't come out until later this fall.
