Wise move: Arizona AD Greg Bryne proactive, warns Arizona fans

In light of the unfortunate situation at Ohio State this week, Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne is being proactive.

In his weekly email to thousands of Arizona fans, Bryne warned Arizona supporters that it only takes one poor decision by a fan for something major to happen.

Bryne wrote:

We are one bad decision by a coach, employee, student-athlete and/or community member/fan from facing significant challenges that can damage our university and athletic program for many years to come.

If you ever know of a situation where a student-athlete is receiving an extra benefit (something that the rest of the student body would not receive) please contact me.

At many schools, this story would never make news. But Byrne is constantly in touch with the Arizona fans via twitter, facebook, weekly emails, and in-person appearances. Because he understands the importance of social media, because he’s available and visible, the Arizona fans listen to his messages.

Check out this video that Byrne tweeted out during the middle of May:
