Walter Byers, the first executive director of the NCAA who spent 36 years leading and shaping the organization that oversees college athletics, has died. A main part of Byers’ job when he started as NCAA executive director in 1951 was to help the schools maintain strict control of all revenues the athletes generated. ”He established something that never existed before,” former Big Eight and Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke said Wednesday from his home in Barrington, Illinois.
