Texas A&M Athletic Director Bill Byrne To Retire Tuesday

The Texas A&M Aggies are going to make the transition to the SEC without their athletic director of almost 10 years, as reports indicate Bill Byrne is set to retire from his position on Tuesday.

There will be a news conference in College Station in which Byrne is expected to discuss his decision and "make an announcement regarding his future" an unknown source told the Associated Press late Monday night.

Byrne's lasting legacy will be making the move to the SEC, which goes officially goes into effect on July 1. The move has been met with mixed reactions, considering how that along with the Texas Longhorns "booked non-conference schedule" puts a hold on the Texas vs. Texas A&M football rivalry that has been a part of the state's history for generations, beginning in 1894 and every year since 1915.

Byrne came to A&M in 2003.
