DALLAS - Walt Anderson has been named Coordinator of Football Officials for the Big 12 Conference, Commissioner Kevin Weiberg has announced.

Anderson has been a football official for 32 years, including as a National Football League official for 10 seasons. While in the NFL, he has worked playoff games in every year of eligibility, including four Wild Card, two Divisional and three Championship games, along with Super Bowl XXXV. In 11 years of college experience, he had previously worked games in the Lone Star, Southland and Southwest Conferences. He has also officiated in NFL Europe.

"I am very impressed with Walt's leadership abilities along with his passion for officiating and the game of football," said Weiberg. "While it is very difficult to replace Tim Millis who did an outstanding job over the past 10 years, I am certain we have found a person who can continue to build on the great foundation that Tim established."

Anderson has also been very active in the training of high school and college officials, as well as video reviews and instructional clinics during the offseason. He is the son of a football coach and also participated in football at the collegiate level at Sam Houston State University, where he was a two-time Academic All-America selection.

A retired dentist who practiced for over 20 years and owned one of the largest group practices in the Houston area, Anderson received his Doctorate of Dentistry from the University of Texas Dental Branch in 1978. He earned his undergraduate degree from Sam Houston State University in 1974. He and his wife, Afshan, reside in Sugar Land, Texas and have five children.

Anderson succeeds Tim Millis who served the Big 12 as the coordinator of football officials since 1996 and was recently named the executive director of the NFL Referee's Association.
