Oliver Luck not looking to be Big 12 commissioner

Posted by Tom Fornelli

There are a lot of questions surrounding the Big 12 right now, not the least of which is who will be the conference's next commissioner. Chuck Neinas, who was brought on to replace Dan Beebe, has no interest in removing the word "acting" from his title, and the conference has put a search committee together to find a replacement.

Although his school isn't even an official member of the conference yet, West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck's name has been brought up as a potential candidate for the job, though it doesn't sound like he's all that interested in taking it. Luck told the Charleston Gazette that it's not really in his plans.

"I'd rather be on the search committee," Luck told the paper.

"No, I'm very happy with what I'm doing. We have lots to do here yet. I'm happy being on [school president] Jim Clements' team."

Others brought up as potential candidates include Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, and NCAA interim vice president of championships and alliances Greg Shaheen.
