According to ESPN, West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck is joining the NCAA as the executive vice president of regulatory affairs and will report directly to NCAA president Mark Emmert.

"This is a time of fundamental change in intercollegiate athletics that will set the foundation for the years ahead," Luck, 54, said in a statement. "The challenges both internal and external to the NCAA present a unique opportunity to help shape the landscape for hundreds of thousands of young men and women. It is an honor to join President Emmert, the NCAA staff, and our member institutions in this journey."

The newly created position allows Luck to oversee the day-to-day operations as he brings academic and membership affairs, the eligibility center and enforcement under one umbrella.
Luck has served as the West Virginia AD since 2010, and and was instrumental in moving the Mountaineers to the Big 12.
