XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck On How Hands-On Vince McMahon Will Be With The League

XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck On How Hands-On Vince McMahon Will Be With The League

 Olivier Luck has many years of executive experience in sports including serving as athletic director of West Virginia and president of NFL Europe. Luck joined Boomer and Gio on WFAN where he talked about what drew him to the XFL.

"I love football and respect football and when Vince McMahon decided he wanted to relaunch the XFL, I thought it was a great opportunity to start from scratch," said Luck. "...This was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Vince has great vision and he's an entrepreneur. But, he's the first one to tell you he doesn't really know football…. He wanted experienced folks to build the game and have credibility in the football space which is obviously important."

Vince does not really know much about American football. Luck was asked how much control McMahon will have when it comes to the individual XFL teams.

"It's vertically integrated – that's what the experts say. So, it's Vince owns and operates all of the franchises. I'm in the process of identifying head coaches and developing the team identities, logos, colors and names. We're starting to hire team presidents and get local operations up and running."
