"Dollar Bill" Byrne fires 17 people to cut budget deficit; pockets $204,000 raise

Former Nebraska athletic director Bill Byrne let 17 people go last Thursday in a move to cut $1 million in salaries to balance the budget. In an "unrelated" story, Bill Byrne received a $204,000 raise. Husker fans should be familiar with the story: Byrne builds up the overall Aggie athletic department (finishing 12th in the director's cup standings) but seemingly at the expense of the football program. More from I Am The 12th Man and the Lincoln Journal-Star.
