"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", Luck said via press release. Oliver Luck, an NCAA executive vice president, will be leaving Indianapolis to become the commissioner and CEO of the XFL, according to a source.
The XFL is expected to launch in 2020.
The XFL's lone season happened in 2001, and was a project from NBC and the WWE.
In announcing the new XFL earlier this year - the league is scheduled to launch in January 2020 - McMahon promised shorter, faster-paced games than the NFL.
"The XFL will be a labor of love as I get to combine my experiences as a player and executive", Luck told ESPN in an email. 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". Luck was selected in the second round of the 1982 National Football League draft by the Houston Oilers where he played until 1986.
