David Parry, who was the head of football officiating in the Big Ten for 19 years and the NCAA's first national coordinator of officials, died Monday from complications of Parkinson's disease. He was 76.
The national coordinator for college football officials said Friday the controversial calls in the Music City and Pinstripe bowls were correct, but added the chaotic end to the North Carolina-Tennessee game will lead the NCAA rules committee to consider a rule change.
David Parry, who oversees college football officiating for the NCAA, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the Big Ten officials handled the confusing final seconds properly.
"The issue that's going to come up is the team that made the mistake by having the illegal substitution ended up getting the benefit from the rule," he said.
