NFL To Hire Full Time Officials For First Time In League History

NFL To Hire Full Time Officials For First Time In League History”

The NFLRA, the officials' union, approved a plan on Wednesday for the implementation of 21 to 24 full-time officials, three sources said.

The full-time officials will come from the current roster of 124 game officials. Even then, the idea of employing full-time officials seemed foreign to those involved in the day-to-day operations.

ESPN's Kevin Seifert noted after Vincent discussed the NFL's plan for full-time officials that potential changes to the job could include "sending them to team practice sites for additional "reps" mid-week" and allowing them to "spend more time together as a group in the National Football League office to study rules and discuss issues". "We share a common goal, which is to make our game as great as it can possibly be, and look forward to working together on this new effort".

The program will permit current officials who wish to transition to a full-time role the opportunity to apply.

The thinking has always been that by being full-time, the referees could dedicate more time to their jobs as officials, thus resulting in a higher-quality on-field product. "We're looking forward to working together with the league on this effort".
