Pac-12 hires Ed Rush to oversee officials

In an effort to upgrade it’s officiating, the Pac-12 hired Ed T. Rush, ex-NBA director of officiating, to coordinate its officials.
Rush is as old school as they come. He spent 32 seasons in the NBA officiating over 2,000 regular season games, 247 playoff and 32 NBA Finals games from 1966-67 through 1996-97 before joining the league office.
From 1998-2003, he was the Director of Officiating for the NBA and oversaw the development of the WNBA officiating program.
Rush has served as a consultant to the Pac-12 men’s basketball officiating program since 2007 with a focus on the training and development of the officiating staff.
He replaces Bill McCabe, who retired after six years as Coordinator of Men’s Basketball Officiating.
Here’s an insightful interview with Rush five years ago by ESPN’s Charley Rosen.
