Changes are coming to the officiating ranks.

Referee Walt Anderson will leave the field to work as a senior vice president, Mike Sando of TheAthletic.com reports.

Anderson, who has worked as an NFL official since 1996, including the past 17 as a referee, now will run the officiating training and development program.

Anderson will report directly to executive vice president Troy Vincent.

The move does not directly affect the current head of officiating, Al Riveron, whose future Sando calls “a separate matter.”

Anderson worked the NFC divisional-round game between the Vikings and 49ers.

  1. So the guy who should have been fired, several times over, for blatant miss calls get promoted to train the refs on what, how to blatantly repeatedly make the wrong calls. Talk about a failing-up organization and explains a lot why they can’t seem to get anything right.
