Beginning with the 2008 NFL season, Riveron was promoted to referee (crew chief) following the retirements of Gerald Austin and Larry Nemmers; before that, he was a side judge from 2004 (his first year of NFL officiating) to 2007.[1] Riveron is the first referee of Hispanic origin in NFL history.[1] He is originally from Cuba, having moved to the United States at the age of 5. He has a wife, Patricia, and two teenage sons.[2] Prior to the NFL, Riveron spent 15 years officiating games in Conference USA and the Big East. Outside of the NFL, Riveron works in South Florida, selling storm panels.
