XFL to name Andrew Luck's father Oliver as CEO, commissioner

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

Tuesday morning, the XFL, which is expected to relaunch in 2020, has named Oliver Luck as its first commissioner.

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 been an incredible experience for me to work with some of the best administrators, faculty, coaches, staff, student-athletes, fans, media and alumni in the nation". Luck, father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and a former signal caller himself, most recently was a high-ranking NCAA executive charged with overseeing that organization's regulatory functions. Last month, the league's owners instituted a new anthem policy: Players no longer are required to be on the field during the playing of the national anthem, though they may be punished by their teams and the league if they protest publicly during the song. He was also the first President and General Manager of Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo, and led the organization to two MLS Cup titles. 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. "I'm thrilled to have this unique opportunity to reimagine the game that has been a constant in my life for 40 years".

Tristan Thompson fined $25K for Game 1 skirmish
Kevin Love has every reason to be perturbed, considering the ruling nearly matches word for word his description of the play. When the two forwards approached each other, Thompson had some words before ramming the ball into Green's face.

Oliver Luck is leaving the NCAA. He founded the company Alpha Entertainment LLC to launch the XFL, and said that the football league, Alpha and WWE would remain separate entities. The XFL previously existed for just one season back in 2001. Host cities and stadiums are now being sought by the league through requests for proposals.
