It has been a long time since Joe Dier could just be a fan.
After more than 30 years, Dier is retiring from Mississippi State media relations in the athletic department.
"Joe Dier is one of those guys that becomes an institution," MSU senior associate athletic director of administration Mike Nemeth said. "He's been here as long as I have. He was always so willing to help. When I oversaw the media relations operations, the response I always got on Joe Dier from the media was that he would do whatever he could to help."
