This is the second in a three-day series featuring University of Arizona Athletic Director Greg Byrne reflecting on his first year here and his expectations of what’s to come.

Less than two weeks after the Arizona Wildcats’ Alamo Bowl loss last year, Greg Byrne sat alongside coach Mike Stoops at a news conference to express his support.

Since then, the UA athletic director has made strides toward improving the football experience — from adding a video board at Arizona Stadium to receiving Arizona Board of Regents’ approval to build a  $72.3 million north end zone complex.

In Part II of the Star’s three-part sitdown with Byrne, conducted last week, the athletic director talks about Stoops, the program’s growth and what lies ahead. Read it in Monday's Sports Extra section.
