Buffalo AD Mark Alnutt added to NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee

Buffalo athletic director Mark Alnutt has apparently left quite an impression despite being on the job just over a year in upstate New York.

The former player turned administrator for the Bulls was named on Thursday to the roster of the NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee and will be responsible for representing the MAC on one of the sport’s governing bodies.

“I’m very honored to represent UB and the Mid-American Conference on the NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee,” Alnutt said in a release from the school. “I look forward to working with the other committee members and the NCAA to continue to advance this sport through enhancing the student-athlete experience.”

Alnutt took over for now-Auburn AD Allen Greene at Buffalo last spring and helped oversee a successful 10 win season with the Bulls under head coach Lance Leipold. In taking over for MAC commissioner Jon Steinbrecher, whose term runs out in June, Alnutt joins a committee that is primarily tasked with, not surprisingly, oversight of both FBS and FCS on a number of fronts. He also previously served on the NCAA Football Playing Rules Committee so the task is certainly not all that out of the ordinary for the veteran administrator.

Alnutt also brings plenty of experience to the committee as a former linebacker and tight end at Missouri. Other appointments to the group are likely to be announced over the coming weeks with four more openings set to take place come July.
