NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden has added his name to the list of ex-coaches in favor of a BCS selection committee to determine the participants in a four-team playoff. In fact, Bowden believes that former coaches would be the best to serve on that committee.

“This Legends group is about as real a group as you can have,” Bowden told ESPN’s Joe Schad. “I voted for years as an active coach. But what you’re really doing then is putting yourself and your conference in position. I used to have an idea of what was going on around me. But now I really have an idea of what’s going on around the country. When we’re retired, we all have a better view.”

The “Legends group” is the Legends Poll, made up of legendary ex-coaches who watch game footage from across the country and participate in regular discussions and voting. Bowden also told ESPN that he would be willing to serve on the committee. “I think ex-coaches have a lot of wisdom,” Bowden said. “I watch the games. And I watch the game films on my iPad.”
