Vince McMahon has struck a blow to the NCAA.

Luck said McMahon assured him the XFL will be a more serious endeavor than the first time around, when the league tried to use some of the WWE's sexed-up, tough-talking antics to spice up second-rate football.

A formal announcement was scheduled for later Tuesday.

Powell's POV: The XFL also released a video (available below) with Luck discussing his new role and stating his desire for a "fast-paced, high energy, authentic, yet simpler game".

Luck left West Virginia as AD in 2014 to become the NCAA's executive vice president of regulatory affairs. Before joining the NCAA, he spent four years as athletic director of West Virginia, orchestrating the school's move to the Big 12. Luck was selected in the second round of the 1982 National Football League draft by the Houston Oilers where he played until 1986.

Apple also has said it will be rolling out tools to help users monitor and curb their smartphone usage. As always, Apple will be live-streaming the event, so you can catch the event right from your home.

He will now relocate from Indianapolis to the XFL's headquarters in CT as he prepares for the league's launch in 2020. Seeing a tremendous opportunity to fill the void, Vince McMahon, XFL Founder and Chairman announced on January 25, 2018, the launch of a new league, which he is personally funding.

Luck will start his job with the XFL on July 1. The XFL previously existed for just one season back in 2001. "I'm thrilled to have this unique opportunity to reimagine the game that has been a constant in my life for 40 years". "His experience as both an athlete and executive will ensure the long-term success of the XFL".

As for any movement on where some XFL teams might call home, NBC Sports reports the league is exploring the possibility of adding a team to play at its Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

The XFL regular season will feature 10 games, followed by two playoff games and then the championship.
