  • Oliver Luck to be commissioner and CEO of 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.

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

A formal announcement was scheduled for later Tuesday.

Luck comes to the XFL after leaving his position as president of regulatory affairs and strategic partnerships for the NCAA, as well as past front office and executive experience with NFL Europe, and with the Frankfurt Galaxy and Rhein Fire.

He also played quarterback for the Houston Oilers and at West Virginia University, where he was inducted into the Mountaineers' Hall of Fame and later spent four years as athletic director. It's the second time McMahon has tried to launch the league. Seeing a tremendous opportunity to fill the void, Vince McMahon, XFL Founder and Chairman announced on January 25, 2018, the launch of a new league, which he is personally funding.

What do you think of Oliver Luck being named commissioner of the XFL?

The league reportedly has its new commissioner - it's a big name. The XFL previously existed for just one season back in 2001. "Oliver's values and leadership skills helped keep the Association focused on supporting student-athletes".

The XFL plans to have eight league-owned teams, 40-man rosters and a 10-week regular season during the NFL's offseason. McMahon is building the XFL with the same commitment and resolve that he has demonstrated building WWE into a global media and sports entertainment powerhouse.

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