The New XFL Names Its Commissioner & CEO

The New XFL Names Its Commissioner & CEO

Vince McMahon has struck a blow to the NCAA.

"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. The 58-year-old's been president of NFL Europe, athletic director for West Virginia and recently served as one of the top execs in the NCAA. "The XFL will create first-class organizations that local cities across the country will be proud of".

The XFL is slated to launch its first 10-week regular season in January of 2020. He was later president and general manager of the Houston Dynamo, leading the franchise to two MLS Cup titles. Luck played in the National Football League for the Houston Oilers and was teammates with Archie Manning.

Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reported a source close to Luck says the former Oiler is intrigued by the "special opportunity" of being involved with the launch of a new professional football league. He graduated from University of Texas law school in 1987.

The XFL's biggest early headline, other than a pleading tweet from wayward quarterback Johnny Manziel, came when McMahon stated overtly that anthem protesting wouldn't be allowed.

Luck added: "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". The XFL confirmed the news moments later on its Twitter account.

McMahon has said his role as founder and chairman of the XFL would not affect his roles with the WWE - whether in the office or creatively.

He noted games will be affordable for the entire family, and that just last week the league submitted their proposal to 30 markets across the US. Each team will have 40-man active rosters, and the playoffs will consist four teams. "The XFL will also establish a health, wellness and safety program that meets the needs of today's athletes".
