With rumors surrounding the future of Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne, the school's president ended the speculation when he told the media that Byrne would not serve past his current contract.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Byrne has served as the school's AD since 2003. While the basketball programs have made big strides in that time, football is king. The Aggies didn't win a Big 12 football championship during Byrne's time. Now the school is transitioning to the SEC after a long, dramatic process that almost turned college football upside down. Byrne hired and fired former coach Mike Sherman and recently replaced him with Kevin Sumlin.
