Bird was born on Dec. 7, 1956.  He ended up at Indiana State almost by accident.

Bird began his college career at the much larger Indiana University. But coming from a small town, the big campus was too much for him.  So he dropped out after less than a month and went to work for his hometown highway department.

After a year of patching potholes, Bird was ready to try college again and decided that Indiana State was a better fit for him.
