After working for the NFL since 1990 Ed Hochuli is retiring

It's a sad day for fans of the NFL.

The league announced on Tuesday that Hochuli, the NFL's longest-tenured official, is retiring along with 22-year veteran Jeff Triplette.

A lawyer in his off-field life, the 67-year-old Hochuli has been an NFL referee since 1999, having began his career with the league as a back judge in 1990.

Triplette has also spent 20-plus years in the National Football League, working as an official since 1996.

Shawn Hochuli has spent the last four seasons as a back judge.

Longtime NFL referee Ed Hochuli, right, is retiring.

He worked two Super Bowls, including Super Bowl XXXII when the Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers, 31-24, for their first championship. He now lives in Phoenix and alongside his officiating career worked at the Valley law firm Jones, Skelton & Hochuli. He also is a founding partner of Jones, Skelton & Hochuli, a law firm in Phoenix.

Hochuli, who is known for his elaborate explanations and pronounced biceps, will serve as an independent consultant to the league.

However, the news of Hochuli's retirement seemed to bring out a more sentimental side from people.
