Longtime NFL coach Perry Fewell and Walt Anderson, a 24-year veteran NFL official, have joined the National Football League’s Officiating Department.

Fewell, who has been named Senior Vice President of Officiating Administration, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Officiating Department, including outreach to the league’s head coaches and general managers, compliance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL and the NFL Referees Association, and serve as a liaison to the NCAA on officiating-related matters.

An NFL assistant coach for more than 20 years, Fewell has earned universal respect for his leadership abilities, serving as an interim head coach two times and helping the 2011 New York Giants to a Super Bowl championship as the club’s defensive coordinator.

Anderson spent 24 years as an NFL official, the past 17 seasons as a referee.  He comes off the field to become the league’s Senior Vice President of Officiating Training and Development, overseeing the game officials, including developing and implementing an enhanced training and performance evaluation system; reestablishing the full-time game officials; officiating scouting, recruitment and pipeline development; and overseeing the officiating position coaches and coordinators.

Senior Vice President of Officiating Alberto Riveron returns for his eighth season at the league office, following nine seasons as an on-field game official, including five as a referee. Riveron will lead the league’s replay review process along with Vice President of Instant Replay Russell Yurk, Director of Video Technology Bret Ayers, and replay assistants Desiree Abrams, Sebrina Brunson, and Artenzia Young-Seigler.

Fewell, Anderson and Riveron will each report directly to Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent.

“Our intentions are to implement meaningful improvements to the game and officiating,” Vincent said. “We will continue to make every effort to improve officiating and pursue officiating excellence.”
