Officiating crews for the 2013 season

NFL_Shield_mark_rgbThe officiating crew rosters for the 2013 NFL season have been distributed. Each crew member is listed with his years of experience, including the upcoming season, and his 2012 crew if he switched crews. Uniform numbers are the 2012 numbers, and a few may be subject to change.

Bill Vinovich — who was a swing official, or a rolling substitute, last season — has his own crew this year. Alberto Riveron was promoted to the league office as senior supervisor of officiating. Vinovich’s crew is largely comprised of Riveron’s crew.

Pete Morelli’s crew has two officials that were not on the field last year. First, Carl Johnson, the former vice president of officiating, is returning to the field as the first full-time official. The other is Dale Shaw, the only new hire by the league this year; Shaw previously worked in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Also, Rob Vernatchi moved from back judge to side judge, and Jim Quirk has moved to center field, going from field judge to back judge.

    Thanks for posting! Not much turnover this year. Less than 10 officials with less than 5 years experience. Glad to see Vinovich get his own crew. BTW – Carey’s crew lists 2 FJ and no SJ. Cheffer’s has 2 SJ but no FJ.

    Thanks. Will make the fix.

    Who are the other full time officials other than Johnson?

    The full-time officials have not been determined as of the last information I received.

    I notice that Rob Vernachi has moved back to SJ, the position he debuted with in ’04 so that the new recruit Shaw can be blooded at BJ.

    Where can I go to get bio info for all of the NFL officials? Footballrefs does a good job giving bios of the the “White Hat” but I want to know more about ALL of the officials. Thanks.
