Still no word on what is behind the SEC's decision not to renew the contract of the league's director of officials Gerald Boudreaux. Andy Katz of ESPN reported Tuesday night that Boudreaux, a former official himself, will not return in that capacity for the 2013-14 season.
Boudreaux deferred comment to the conference office, which has to this point declined to do so. He has been the league's director of officials since 2006.
Jon Solomon of the Birmingham News reports that Boudreaux was not a full-time employee of the SEC but made $114,300 in 2011-12 as an independent contractor hired by the league. The SEC's director of officials for football is a full-time position.
