ULM AD Floyd stepping down, citing health reasons
Aug. 20, 2018
MONROE, La. (AP) — Louisiana-Monroe athletic director Nick Floyd is resigning to attend to health matters.
ULM spokesman John Lewandowski says Floyd will remain with the university in another role that has yet to be determined through the end of this year.
ULM's chief administrative officer Scott McDonald will have day-to-day oversight of the athletics department.
The 58-year-old Floyd was hired as athletic director about 13 months ago after spending more than 15 years in high-level athletic administration posts at East Carolina. Floyd also was a Conference USA associate commissioner before his stint at ECU.
ULM says Floyd's decision on Monday is unrelated to an NCAA decision days earlier to place the men's basketball program on two years' probation after finding that a former assistant coach performed online course work and exams for players.
