The Eagles are really on a roll.

First they won their first Super Bowl ever.

Now the bane of their existence, zebra Ed Hochuli, is retiring!

Hochuli, who most Birds fans know has been putting his thumb on the scale for Philly opponents for years, has has ended a colorful career that made him one of the most recognized game officials in American sports.

Known for his long-winded explanations and exposed biceps, Hochuli, 67, will serve as an independent consultant to the league. The NFL promoted his son, back judge Shawn Hochuli, to replace him.

Hochuli’s pending retirement has been rumored in league circles for months, but he refused on multiple occasions to confirm it publicly. He spent part of last week in his new role as an independent consultant, meeting with the NFL’s competition committee and other football operations officials.
