He is otherwise unconcerned with the rule.
"The only way we revoke a kid's scholarship is if he does something wrong," he said. "It doesn't matter if it's a one-year scholarship or a four-year scholarship."
A student-athlete can still lose the benefits of a multi-year scholarship at any time because of academic or behavioral issues. In that case, the school doesn't have to honor the agreement if it ends early.
However, with the multi-year pacts in place, a student-athlete has the assurance of knowing the scholarship there as long as there is no trouble.
"I think now if you ask almost any coach or AD, the response is always the same, which is, 'Hey, we don't cut kids because of athletic weaknesses. It's because he or she did not do the right thing in the classroom or off the field.'" Luck said. "Coaches simply don't release kids and kids don't lose scholarships because they aren't good tennis players."
Luck said the Mountaineers are also ready to accommodate another significant change. The NCAA in October enacted proposed legislation to allow Division I schools to give student-athletes on scholarship a $2,000 stipend.
There was instant criticism and opposition and the plan was suspended in December when the NCAA realized more than 62.5 percent of the 330 schools would vote to override the rule.
"I think everyone believes it's inevitable," Luck said. "We're basically redefining the scholarship, which hasn't been redefined since the 1960s."
Luck, whose son, Andrew, was a quarterback at Stanford, and whose daughter, Mary Ellen, plays volleyball for the Cardinal, said he supports the legislation for all of WVU's sports.
Luck said it's "a matter of time" until the NCAA approves the stipend and he's preparing to adjust his budget accordingly.
"It clearly will have a financial impact, but to be honest, it's in the best interest of the student-athlete, in particular as we find a lot of kids are coming here from farther and farther away now," he said.
"Look at our football roster and our basketball roster. A lot has changed in 30 years since I was a student-athlete here.
"Maybe one or two people had to fly to Pittsburgh to join the football team for practice. Everyone had a pretty easy drive. That's changed.
"We've got a lot of kids from Florida and we're getting more and more from Texas. Flying around like they have to is not inexpensive and I think we can help with that."
