UM AD O’Day Chairs Selection Committee

FRISCO, Texas (1/4/12) –  The second Football Championship Summit will host more than 100 guests, as key FCS stakeholders will gather in Frisco on Jan. 6, a day prior to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game.

Last year’s Summit spurred additional meetings in 2011 of FCS athletic directors and presidents, and helped lead to the formation of the FCS CEO Group, a collection of nearly two dozen university presidents and chancellors, and the NCAA’s newly-organized FCS Working Group.

A review of the NCAA Football Championship will include Football Committee Chairman Jim O’Day of The University of Montana, Greg Shaheen and Damani Leech from NCAA Championships and Alliances, and ESPN Vice President Carol Stiff.

In addition to the Summit, O’Day and Shaheen will also meet with a group of 17 FCS Presidents and FCS Commissioners Thursday afternoon, Jan. 6.

“Once again, this should be a very informative session for all of us who have teams playing at the Football Championship Subdivision level,” said O’Day, who has chaired the selection process each of the past two years – and is serving as a presenter for the second consecutive year. “It’s an opportunity for athletic directors, coaches, administrators and presidents to hear the latest information from the highest ranking officials at the NCAA, including President Mark Emmert, and the challenges facing all Division I schools.”

The FCS Summit will conclude with a “town hall” session facilitated by three athletic directors, Montana State’s Peter Fields, Stephen F. Austin’s Robert Hill, and Appalachian State’s Charlie Cobb.

The NCAA Division I Championship Game is this Saturday,  Jan. 7, at 11:00 a.m. (Mountain), at Frisco’s Pizza Hut Park, featuring No. 1 seed Sam Houston State (14-0) and No. 2 seed North Dakota State (13-1). The sold-out contest will be televised live nationally on ESPN2.
