The PAC 12 is on the hunt for a new commissioner as current commissioner Larry Scott and the conference agreed to part ways after eleven years. Scott's contract is set to expire in June and one name that has been surfacing as a potential replacement is former West Virginia athletic director, Oliver Luck, according to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic.
Luck has had quite an accomplished career since his playing days at West Virginia back in the late 70s, early 80s.
He served as President of NFL Europe from 1996-2000 before coming President and General Manager of the Houston Dynamo of the MLS from 2005-10. Luck then returned to Morgantown to serve as the university's athletic director and helped usher West Virginia's move from the Big East to the Big 12 Conference. Luck left his role at WVU in 2014 to become the Executive Vice President for Regulatory Affairs with the NCAA from 2014-18 before most recently being named the commissioner of the XFL.
If the PAC 12 is looking for an experienced, well-respected individual to replace Scott, Luck should be in the mix.
