XFL makes splash in landing Andrew Luck's dad

"Football has been a constant in my life for more than 40 years, and I am thrilled to have the unique opportunity to reimagine the game", Luck said.

Oliver Luck, the father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, is reportedly leaving his job as an NCAA executive vice president to join Vince McMahon's XFL.

Today it was announced that former National Football League and NCAA executive and quarterback Oliver Luck will be the Commissioner & CEO of the XFL. "All of those combined led me to believe the key ingredients to a successful launch are there to deliver great football, which I think was one of the failings of the original league".

The XFL's lone season happened in 2001, and was a project from NBC and the WWE.

Announced earlier this year, the XFL is another attempt to re-imagine the game of football, with the official launch of the league coming in 2020. He left in 2014 to become the NCAA's Executive Vice President for Regulatory Affairs and Strategic Partnerships, a position that investigates potential NCAA violations.

"The XFL will be a labor of love as I get to combine my experiences as a player and executive", Luck wrote in an email to ESPN.

Luck said he would present a "dynamic" version of football that's "fast-paced, high energy, authentic yet simpler".

"It has been a tremendous honor to serve my alma mater as director of athletics", Luck said at the time.

Oliver Luck will toe the XFL line as its new commissioner.

Luck earned his J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, graduating cum laude in 1987. "Oliver's values and leadership skills helped keep the Association focused on supporting student-athletes".
