Ex-NCAA official, Andrew Luck's father is new XFL commissioner

Ex-NCAA official, Andrew Luck's father is new XFL commissioner

"Oliver and I share the same vision and passion for reimagining the game of football", McMahon said in a statement.

A formal announcement was scheduled for later Tuesday. They also plan on making the games more affordable for families and the process has already begun to find the right homes for the league's 8 XFL franchises. Luck, the former West Virginia athletic director, had been the NCAA's executive vice president of regulatory affairs and strategic partnerships since 2014.

Luck, the father of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, played four seasons for the Houston Oilers after being drafted in the second round out of West Virginia in 1982.

The XFL isn't the only new football league looking to find footing. "His experience as both an athlete and executive will ensure the long-term success of the XFL". The XFL confirmed the news moments later on its Twitter account.

Luck appeared in a video saying that he's thrilled to have the opportunity to reimagine football, and that fans can expect a fast paced, high-energy, simpler game.

Apple Finally Approved Telegram Update
The watchdog also requested Apple no longer make the app available for download in Russian Federation . From the middle of April instant messenger users could not update it to the latest version.

The XFL has named Oliver as its first commissioner and CEO.

Weekly Standard reporter Andrew Egger weighs in on the new policy.

The XFL is set to start slated to launch its first 10-week regular season in January of 2020. 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.

McMahon, with Luck running the football side of things, will now try to capitalize on the NFL's increasingly battered image, at least in part by appealing to the portion of the pro-football fan base that thinks players should stand during the national anthem.
