Vince McMahon Taps Andrew Luck's Dad To Be XFL's New Commissioner

Oliver Luck is leaving the NCAA to become the commissioner and CEO of the XFL. More

The XFL has announced Oliver Luck as the Commissioner and CEO of the league. The new XFL is scheduled to begin in 2020.

"Football has always been a constant in my life and I'm excited about the unique opportunity to present America's favorite sport to fans in a new way", said Oliver Luck.

Luck served as the president of NFL Europe and spent four years as athletic director at West Virginia.

He said that the XFL will allow him to reimagine how football is played on the field and delivered to fans.

Luck has considerable sports-executive experience, in other words, and his hiring shows that XFL founder Vince McMahon is taking things a little more seriously this time around.

During the launch announcement in January, McMahon made it a point to draw a hard line on national anthem rules, saying it would be "appropriate" that future XFL players stand for the "Star-Spangled Banner". I am more familiar with Andrew Luck than I am Oliver Luck, but it's worth noting that the respected ProFootballTalk.com's Michael David Smith wrote that Oliver's hire provides "some credibility to the upstart league".

Oliver Luck is leaving the NCAA. "The XFL will create first-class organizations that local cities across the country will be proud of".

He also was the first president and general manager of Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo.

Andrew Luck's dad will leave his post at the NCAA to become commissioner and CEO of the new XFL.

Luck earned his J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, graduating cum laude in 1987.

The XFL plans to have eight league-owned teams, 40-man rosters and a 10-week regular season during the NFL's offseason. There's a reported $100 million outlay by McMahon to start the XFL. Earlier this year, the former football league announced that it would be re-launching in 2020. "As far as our league is concerned, it will have nothing to do with politics, absolutely nothing, and nothing to do with social issues, either".
