Andrew Luck may be done at Stanford, but his name will live on forever. Through an anonymous donation, the offensive coordinator position has been endowed in honor of the former quarterback and is now officially called the “Andrew Luck Director of Offense.” Pep Hamilton, who is in his third season with the team, currently holds the position of offensive coordinator.
Luck was very humbled by the honor stating, “It is a huge tribute. To have anything endowed in my name is a complete honor. I feel very fortunate to have come to Stanford, and I have always enjoyed representing the University. The offensive coordinators I’ve had here helped me not only in football, but also to grow so much as a person. To be a part of that leadership and position is a very proud legacy for me.”
Too soon? Maybe. But this is not the first endowment for athletic positions at Stanford. Dave Shaw, the Head Football Coach at Stanford, is officially titled the Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football.
