Terry McAulay serves as an on-air rules analyst for Sunday Night Football, Football Night in America, and Notre Dame Football on NBC. McAulay joined NBC Sports in June 2018 following his retirement after 20 years as an on-field NFL game official, and a decade as a college football officiating administrator.
McAulay will be on-site at Sunday Night Football and Notre Dame Football games, moving between the broadcast booth during the game, and the studio set for pre-game and halftime shows. In addition, on the mornings after games where rulings are a hot topic, McAulay will join Pro Football Talk with Mike Florio on NBC Sports Radio and NBCSN.
In Dec. 2020, McAulay was named the 2021 winner of the Dave Dixon Louisiana Sports Leadership Award presented by the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. McAulay is among the 2021 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Class, which also includes current Alabama and former LSU head coach Nick Saban and former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marques Colston.
McAulay served as a referee for the last 17 of his 20 NFL seasons (1998-2017), previously serving as a side judge and a field judge. He led the officiating crew in three Super Bowls (XXXIX, XLIII, and XLVIII) and worked 15 additional NFL Playoff games, including nine conference championship games. He also served as the American Athletic Conference’s coordinator of football officiating from 2008-17 (named the Big East Conference from 2008-13). As an on-field college official, McAulay was the referee for the Nebraska-Tennessee national championship game (Bowl Alliance Championship) at the Orange Bowl in January 1998.
