Luck's legacy lives on at StanfordMay 22, 2012 - 10:05 PM Stanford, CA (Sports Network) - Stanford's offensive coordinator position has been endowed by a very generous gift from an anonymous donor in honor of former quarterback Andrew Luck.
Pep Hamilton, who is Stanford's offensive coordinator, becomes Stanford's first Andrew Luck Director of Offense.
"It is a tremendous honor to hold this position and to be associated with an outstanding young man like Andrew Luck, who means so much to Stanford football and the Stanford community," Hamilton said.
Luck, the No. 1 overall pick by the Colts in last month's NFL draft, ranks first on the school's career lists for touchdown passes (82), completion percentage (.687; 713-1064), passing efficiency (162.76) and total offense (10,387) -- in three years of play.
Stanford had recorded seven straight losing seasons before Luck took over the offense in 2009. He led the Cardinal to a 31-7 record in his 38 career starts.
Luck has twice been runner-up for the Heisman Trophy and twice been named the Pac-12's Offensive Player of the Year.
"It is a huge tribute," Luck said. "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."
No one has shouted yet.
