The Professor has been covering the NFL for 40 years and thinks it's never been more difficult to be an official. The game has gotten more complex, and the bloated rule book is excruciatingly complicated.

On this week's SCHOOLED, we're joined by former Vice President of Officiating for the NFL, and current Fox Sports rules analyst Mike Pereira. They discuss Mike's history of rising through the ranks, how he deals with angry coaches, why it takes at least 5 seasons to develop Super Bowl-level skills, and how changes (like going to 8 officials in the 2017 season) are going to affect the future of officiating in the league.

Check out Mike's book "After Further Review: My Life Including the Infamous, Controversial, and Unforgettable Calls That Changed the NFL" out on amazon.com today!
