FOX has hired recently retired NFL Vice President of Officiating Mike Pereira as a rule analyst, Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Farmer reports that FOX is building a command center in Los Angeles for Pereira, who lives in Sacramento. Pereira will be active on FOX’s television broadcasts, as well as on FOX Sports Radio and live in-game chats on FOXSports.com.
“If I was given my choice of anything I could do after retiring from the league, this is pretty much it,” Pereira told Farmer.
Pereira, a former side judge in the NFL, retired in April after serving as the league’s director of officiating since 2001.
