MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Oliver Luck says he's staying at West Virginia.

The athletic director has put to rest talk he might be interested in taking over at Stanford, where his son, Andrew, starred at quarterback before he was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the top pick in last month's NFL draft. Luck also has a daughter who plays volleyball at Stanford.

The Stanford job became available earlier this month when the Big 12 hired Bob Bowlsby as commissioner. West Virginia is joining the Big 12 in July.

Luck confirmed to The Associated Press in a text message Thursday that he would remain with the Mountaineers.
