STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Mississippi State University officials say Greg Byrne will replace Larry Templeton as athletics director.

after it expires June 30th.
Byrne has served as Mississippi State's associate athletic
director for development and external affairs.
Greg Byrne is the son of Bill Byrne, the Texas A&M AD who also
served decade-long stints as the athletic director at Nebraska and
Greg Byrne graduated from Arizona State and worked at both
Oregon State and Kentucky.
