NFL Heads NIFL Officiating NFL Officiating Department Heads NIFL Officiating The NFL officiating department entered into a partnership with the National Indoor Football League (NIFL) for the 2005 season. The NFL officiating department is now involved in the recruiting, training and evaluation of the NIFL officials for 2005. As part of the new leadership change, Dan Blum, formerly the NIFL supervisor of officials, was promoted to director of operation for the league. He will still be overseeing officiating as well as taking on additional football operations. All NIFL officials who officiated for the league had to reapply to be eligible to officiate in the 2005 season.
