Dean of Officials

| 1 Comment

Pac-10 officiating has been a sore subject for conference football fans, so Larry Scott has made addressing the problem an early priority in his tenure.  Today, he hired NFL referee Tony Corrente as the Coordinator of Football Officiating to oversee and implement change in the officiating program.

Corrente takes over for Mike Pereira, who filled the role on an interim basis since February and will remain on as a consultant.

"Tony Corrente has extensive experience in both college football and the NFL and has earned the reputation as one of the most respected leaders in officiating," Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott said. "With numerous NFL postseason assignments in his background, including the Super Bowl, Tony has worked at the very highest levels in the sport. We are very fortunate to have him leading our new football officiating program."

As Scott said, Corrente is a renowned NFL ref, so if you don't know the name, you may recognize him.

He refereed Super Bowl XLI between the Colts and Bears.
