After Alabama earned its first trip to the NCAA men's Final Four with an 89-82 victory over Clemson
HISTORICAL ARCHIVE, MINIMUM USAGE FEE APPLIES;
After Alabama earned its first trip to the NCAA men's Final Four with an 89-82 victory over Clemson this weekend, Paul Finebaum praised Crimson Tide athletic director Greg Byrne for the program's recent turnaround during his weekly appearance on McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning...
quote:

"He's the best athletic director in the country," Finebaum said of Byrne (h/t On3). “And that’s not easy to do or be at Alabama."

"You can’t be the athletic director of a school like that and not be criticized for something along the way," Finebaum continued. "But when you say you think about some of the decisions that he’s made, you know, the baseball situation last year was really one of his crucibles. He handled it. The situation corrected itself. He was transparent, and I think that’s the most important thing to be."

"He is business-like, he is professional, and he is prepared," Finebaum declared. "And too often, we see an AD in a situation who has a plan and then gets pulled and tugged and ends up with a Bryan Harsin. Greg has a coalition, and he knows the way the game is played."

Hard to argue with his logic. It's clear Byrne is getting results.

Who's had a better 2-3 years than Woodward?

He's a pretty good AD if you ignore the fact that one of his players was an accomplice to murder and one of his coaches defended him.

I don't know if he's the best, but he's definitely top 5. He's done a stellar job since he's been at Bama.
