Byrne, born for the AD’s job, marks his first year at MSU

When Bill Byrne sat down for dinner, his younger son, Greg, would pepper him with questions about sports. Typical of a kid whose dad is involved in college athletics.
Except the questions weren’t typical.
“Everything from how and why I went about hiring this coach to planning facilities to scheduling,” Bill recalled, as he spoke last week from his athletics director’s office at Texas A&M.
Such questions explain a great deal about Greg Byrne and his becoming a professional equal with his father.
