Roles Are Changing For College Athletic Directors

Earlier this month, University of Arizona Athletic Director Greg Byrne decided to leave Tucson for the University of Alabama.

Byrne will be in charge of a department that has seen its football program win four of the past eight national championships.

Byrne was highly-sought after in this changing world of college athletics because of a combination of skills.

To learn more about those skills and what’s next for UA, we talked with sportswriter Jon Wilner of The San Jose Mercury News. He covers the Pac-12 Conference.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
