Oliver Luck has worn many hats in many places. As a student at WVU, he wore a football helmet before moving on to the NFL as the starting quarterback of the Houston Oilers. He’s worked as a vice president within the NFL, ran World Football League teams and, well, the league itself. He’s been in charge of the Houston Sports Authority and was president of the Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamos. Of course, he was also the WVU athletic director that got the university into the Big 12 and served on the College Football Playoff committee. Today, though, wearing the hat of first executive vice president of regulatory affairs for the NCAA, Luck has to look at shoes. College basketball shoes, that is. For what Sports Illustrated headlined “Shoestorm.” The reference is to the FBI investigation exposing corruption involving sneaker companies, coaches and college basketball players. – Mitch Vingle, wvgazettemail.comRead More
