The University of Alabama is mourning the loss of Athletic Director Mal Moore. He passed away March 30th at Duke University Medical Center in Durham North Carolina.
It's not just Alabama fans who knew Mal Moore. The football rivalry in Alabama between Bama and Auburn fans is unlike most around the country. But when it comes to Mal Moore, even Auburn Coaches, players and fans respected him and what he did for sports at the University of Alabama.
One man who knows that very well is former Auburn Coach Pat Dye, who along with Moore, was an assistant on Bear Bryant's coaching staff back in the 60's and 70's.
