Mal Moore comments on death of Billy Neighbors

STATEMENT FROM ALABAMA DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS MAL MOORE ON THE PASSING OF BILLY NEIGHBORS

“Hearing the news of the passing of Billy Neighbors is very difficult,” Alabama athletic director Mal Moore said. “Billy meant so much to Alabama football over the decades. He was one of our first great players under Coach Bryant, and he had become a tremendous friend to me and everyone in the Alabama family. Billy was easy to like. It was always easy to talk with Billy. We spoke three or four times a week for as far back as I can remember. I have lost a great friend and Alabama certainly lost a legend. It’s just a tremendous loss.”
