New Big East Supervisor of Officials

USA TODAY Sports

John Cahill has ended a 40 year career as a basketball referee and accepted a position as supervisor of officials for the new Big East Confeerence. He is replacing Art Hyland, who is retiring. Cahill's new role involves training, development and assigning of officials, conducting a rules clinic at each of the member schools, and traveling to game sites to evaluate crews and stay in touch with coaches and athletic directors.

After working the NCAA Tounament championship game in Atlanta, which marked the 11th time he had called a Final Four game, the 60 year old attorney said there will be travel, but not to the extent of when he was working between 60 and 90 games per college basketball season.

A real plus getting someone of his caliber, who was rated as one of the nation's most-respected officials.
