Not my opinion, according to Fred Yelverton:

It appears that considerable skill and experience is needed--along with selection of a perennial or annual rye that will fade out quickly in spring.
I never had any problem getting the rye to die back in bermuda. We fertilized the perennial rye heavy and when temp got to 90F the rye would disappear. And rye does fine when subjected to freezes. It may get a little brown but hardly ever affected it.
