At ECU, Floyd’s job included financial and operational oversight of a $40 million per year athletics program.

There were record setting ticket sales, attendance and donations.

From 2001-2003 Floyd served as senior associate director of athletics and interim director from 2003-2004.

Later on at Southern Mississippi, Floyd spent 12 years in many different roles like, assistant athletic director, associate athletic director, and senior associate athletic director.

Floyd also served as Conference USA Associate Commissioner (1998-2001) in Chicago, Illinois.
