USC's Pat Haden Stepping Down From College Football Playoff Committee

USC AD Pat Haden is stepping down from his position on the College Football Playoff selection committee due to health reasons. Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the College Football Playoff, made the announcement Friday.

Haden, who was serving the second year of a two-year contract, claims that doctors want him to reduce his travel. Haden had a medical scare on the sideline before USC's game against Notre Dame two weeks back.
