Oliver Luck’s name has been in the news of late but for all the wrong reasons. Mostly, due to his continued legal battle with Vince McMahon. However, Luck might be in line for the role of Commissioner, but this time with the PAC-12.
According to a tweet by CBS Sports, Dennis Dodd, Luck’s name is part of the Pac-12 commissioner’s replacement list. This list also includes Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith and Clemson Athletic Director Dan Radakovich.
Back in late January Luck’s name was out there as well with a host of others according to Pete Thamel. Now it looks like Luck is a top 3 candidate.
At 60 years old, Luck was a college quarterback at West Virginia. He spent five seasons in the NFL with the Houston Oilers from 1982 to 1986. After his playing days, he became the athletic director at West Virginia.
He later went onto become president of NFL Europe, has worked for the NCAA, MLS and XFL. His son, Andrew Luck, also played in the Pac-12 at Stanford.
Back in October Oliver Luck and Urban Meyer joined with Altius Sports Partners. They deal with Name, Image and Likeness compensation for college athletes. Meyer recently became head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. No word on if he is still part of the group.
Oliver seems like a good fit for the Pac-12 Commissioner job. We will find out if he lands the role in April.
