GREENSBORO, N.C. -- BCS officials selected Bill Hancock to become the first executive director of college football's postseason system.
BCS coordinator and Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford announced Hancock's promotion from administrator to his new position on Tuesday.
Hancock will replace the BCS coordinator. The coordinator position has rotated on a two-year basis between conference commissioners since the Bowl Championship Series was implemented in 1998.
Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford's two-year term as coordinator will end Jan. 7.
At that point Hancock, who has been working as an administrator and spokesman for the BCS since 2005, will assume most of the coordinator's duties.
Big East commissioner John Marinatto would have been next in line to take over the role of BCS coordinator.
