The Super Bowl XLVII officiating crew—which also includes Jerome Boger (referee); Darrell Jenkins (umpire); Steve Stelljes (head linesman); Byron Boston (line judge); Craig Wrolstad (field judge); Joe Larrew (side judge) and Dino Paganelli (back judge)—collectively has 77 years of NFL officiating experience and 50 combined playoff game assignments, the NFL release said.
More from the NFL:
Under the NFL officiating program's evaluation system, the highest-rated eligible officials at each position earn the right to work the Super Bowl. Super Bowl officials must have at least five years of NFL experience and previous playoff assignments.
Bill Spyksma is the replay official. The replay assistant is Terry Sullivan.
"We congratulate Jerome and his entire crew on being assigned to work at Super Bowl XLVII," said NFL Vice President of Officiating Carl Johnson. â€œJust like the two competing teams, every member of this officiating crew has had an outstanding season and earned this honor. We are confident that they will have a great game on Sunday."
