CANTON, Ohio (AP) — NFL officiating chief Al Riveron, a Cuban who became the league's first Hispanic referee, is retiring Friday.
Riveron worked as an on-field official for nine years and became a member of the NFL's officiating staff in 2013.
He will be replaced by two of the league's senior vice president in officiating, Walter Anderson, a former referee, and Perry Fewell, a former coach.
