(AP) -- West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck is joining the NCAA as executive vice president of regulatory affairs.
The NCAA is creating a new position for Luck that will bring academic and membership affairs, the eligibility center and enforcement under one umbrella. He will oversee day-to-day operations in all NCAA regulatory functions. Among his duties, the NCAA said in its announcement, will be "strengthening relationships with NCAA colleges and universities."
Luck will report to NCAA President Mark Emmert, who created the role during a restructuring of his senior staff earlier this year. Luck will start his new job early next year.
