 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Longtime college and NFL referee David Parry will be the first national coordinator of college football officiating.
Parry, coordinator of football officials for the Big Ten, will oversee national training programs for referees, assign and evaluate postseason officiating crews, and coordinate national meetings of the referees, the NCAA said Friday.
The NCAA and the Collegiate Commissioners Association also established College Football Officiating LLC, which will be governed by a 15-member board.
Eleven representatives will come from the Division I Bowl Subdivision, two from Division I Championship Subdivision conferences and two will be appointed by NCAA President Myles Brand.
A subsidiary of the NCAA and the CCA, the CFO will aim to create consistency in applying game rules and officiating mechanics and to ensure officials and conferences adhere to directives from the NCAA and commissioners association.
``This cooperative effort ... enhances the existing strong system in place across conferences and will better position the officiating community in the future,'' Tom Jernstedt, an NCAA executive vice president and chairman of the CFO board, said in a statement. ``College football is experiencing unprecedented fan and media interest and the potential for growth is very good. We want to ensure the best possible system is in place to support that growth.''
The CFO will also appoint the national coordinator of officials. Parry, an NCAA official for 20 years and an NFL official for 15 years, was proud to be the first.
``Enhancing college football officiating to the highest level will be the challenge,'' he said. ``By cooperation and leveraging the talent within our conferences and inside the NCAA, we can ensure a shared success.''
Parry's experience includes 20 NCAA tournaments, 12 NFL playoffs and four NFL championship games. He officiated at the Super Bowl in 1983.
