This is the first Super Bowl assignment for Corrente (pronounced "cor-REN-tee"), who is concluding his 12th season as an NFL game official. The Cal State-Fullerton alum served as the alternate referee in last year's Super Bowl. Carl and Perry Paganelli become the first pair of brothers ever assigned to officiate a Super Bowl.
Under the NFL officiating program's evaluation system, the highest-rated officials at each position with the appropriate experience earn the right to work the Super Bowl. Super Bowl officials must have five years of NFL experience and previous playoff assignments.
Mark Burns is the replay assistant and will be working his second Super Bowl. Jeff Triplette, Butch Hannah, Carl Johnson, Buddy Horton, and Rich Reels will serve as alternate officials.
