on

NFL Senior Vice President of Officiating Al Riveron is reportedly retiring, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Riveron served as a referee for nine years before joining the league office as it’s head of officiating and replay czar in 2013.

While Riveron has had an accomplished and decorated career as the NFL’s first Hispanic referee, he will always live in infamy in Pittsburgh for one crucial call.

It was Riveron that ruled from New York that former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James did not complete a touchdown catch that would have given the team a monster win over the New England Patriots in 2017.

Riveron’s responsibilities will be fulfilled by Senior Vice Presidents of Officiating Walt Anderson and Perry Fewell, according to Pelissero.
