Football coaches to get results of poll review

WACO, Texas -- The results of a three-month review of the USA Today coaches' college football poll will be presented next week during the annual spring meeting of the American Football Coaches Association's board of trustees.

AFCA trustees requested the outside review during the coaches' convention last year.

Grant Teaff, the group's executive director, says Gallup was asked to conduct a thorough study and make recommendations that would enhance the credibility and accuracy of the rankings. The coaches' poll, which started in 1950, is one of two that helps determine which teams go to the Bowl Championship Series.

After getting the results at the meeting in Phoenix next week, the AFCA will consult with its media partner, USA Today, and BCS officials before making public any changes to the voting process.
