It will be interesting to follow Byrne’s development as Alabama’s athletic director. Clearly, the Crimson Tide enjoy their position as one of the country’s premier football programs. But Alabama has enjoyed successes in other areas of its athletic department lately.
Earlier Monday, Battle spoke to Paul Finebaum and offered his opinion about leaving his post. He had a quality perspective to share about the task facing Alabama’s athletic director whenever the time comes that Nick Saban chooses to move on.
The tweet above is a warm way for Byrne to start a relationship with his new fan base. Kudos to him.
