  • Mark Hittner is an American football official in the National Football League (NFL) since the beginning of the 1997 NFL season. He works as a head linesman and wears the uniform number 28. He is most notable for officiating in the last three of five Super Bowls, most recently in Super Bowl XL on February 5, 2006 between the Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers.Hittner played college football at Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas from 1976 to 1979 where he was an all-conference quarterback in 1978-79 and is the school's second-leading career passer in yards (4,830).Hittner was a college football official in the Big Eight/Big 12 Conference for 13 years prior to joining the NFL in 1997. He worked the first Big 12 championship game at the Trans World Dome in St. Louis in 1996, won by the Texas Longhorns over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 37-27.In the NFL, Hittner has officiated eight post-season assignments including Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, and XL in addition to two wild-card, one divisional, and 2 conference championship games.For the 2015 NFL season, Hittner is the head linesman on the officiating crew headed by referee Craig Wrolstad and he has worked with referee Ed Hochuli from the 2000 NFL season to the 2013 NFL season.For the 2011–2012 NFL season, Hittner was the referee during the NFC Championship Game who blew his whistle unusually hastily to call a play dead on a fumble by Ahmad Bradshaw when San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman stripped the ball. The official call was that forward progress had stopped, which negated the fumble, even though Bradshaw was still fighting for extra yardage when the ball was stripped. This call happened late in the fourth quarter in a tie game in field goal range for the 49ers who presumably would have run out the clock and kicked the field goal to advance to Super Bowl XLVI. The game went into overtime where the New York Giants would win. The day after the game, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said the call was analogous to the controversial Tuck Rule during the 2002 AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Raiders and Patriots.Outside of his NFL officiating duties, Hittner owns a financial services company in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.Hittner is married and has three sons.
