  • Oliver Luck says XFL players will stand for the national anthem

Vince McMahon has struck a blow to the NCAA.

The city, which also hosted an XFL team in its original run in the Rage, is said to be considering a league in the rival Alliance of American Football league - founded by Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, in 2020, too.

The 58-year-old was the director of athletics at West Virginia for four years before joining the NCAA in 2014. Luck is also a 2-time first-team Academic All-American and a 2-time WVU team MVP, and played Pro Football from 1982-1986 as a quarterback for the Houston Oilers.

He will now relocate from Indianapolis to the XFL's headquarters in CT as he prepares for the league's launch in 2020.

McMahon, the XFL's founder and chairman, confirmed Luck's hiring in a Tuesday, June 5 news release.

According to a report in the New York Times, the owners changed the league's anthem policy because they were anxious that continued attacks from President Trump, who has criticized the protesting players, would damage the league's reputation. "Oliver's values and leadership skills helped keep the Association focused on supporting student-athletes".

The league will feature eights teams with 40-man rosters. He founded the company Alpha Entertainment LLC to launch the XFL, and said that the football league, Alpha and WWE would remain separate entities.
