Antwan Floyd was named the Director of Speed, Strength and Conditioning for the Chanticleer athletic programs in January 2014.
In addition to the oversight of speed, strength and conditioning, Floyd will work specifically with the football program.
Floyd comes to Coastal Carolina after two years serving as the Associate Director of Sports Performance at the University of Houston where he worked for Brian Odom. During his two years with the Cougars, Floyd's responsibilities included training the football and cross country programs as well as assisting in all aspects of the Cougar Sports Performance Department.
Prior to working at Houston, Floyd served as the Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning for the Associate A.D. for Sports Performance, Dr. Pat Ivey at the University of Missouri where he was administratively responsible for graduate assistant development, facilities, and community outreach. Other responsibilities included assisting with the player development program for the Missouri football team, helping former Tigers prepare for the NFL upon completion of their eligibility and being directly responsible for the Missouri track team's sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers and multis.
At Missouri Floyd learned that the responsibility of training student-athletes is a privilege, and that when preparing them you do it physically and mentally. Floyd began his career at the University of Missouri in 2002 as a graduate assistant with the Director of Strength and Conditioning, Jeff Fish. During his tenure, Floyd served as the coach for the wrestling, cross country, swimming and diving and men's and women's golf teams.

Before Missouri, Floyd worked as an intern for Scott Bennett at the University of Wyoming. He earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in exercise physiology at Wyoming while playing football for the Cowboys.
Floyd maintains national certification through the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
