LA Chargers executive Pollack named XFL president

Jeffrey Pollack has been named XFL president and chief operating officer. He most recently served as chief marketing & strategy officer and special advisor with the NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers.

Pollack will oversee the league’s strategic planning and business operations, as well as the management of its eight teams.

“It’s not often that a new professional sports league is positioned for success like the XFL,” said Pollack. “There’s a clear vision for what we will offer our fans, players and partners, and I look forward to working closely with Vince [McMahon] and Oliver [Luck] to bring that vision to life.”

The XFL, which is owned by Vince McMahon, kicks off in February 2020.
