Bermuda is often overseeded with rye (or vice versa) and as the rye goes dormant the bermuda will germinate and sprout. As long as you water regularly the bermuda seed will sprout - it just prefers warmer weather than we have been having this April. Warmer temperatures are predicted this weekend, though, so I think you will begin to see some new bermuda sprouts soon. Just be patient. Best wishes with your lawn!
