DENTON, Texas- North Texas head women's basketball coach Karen Aston announced the hiring of her director of women's basketball operations, Erin Floyd. Floyd comes to North Texas after having served as a player and student assistant coach for Aston at Charlotte.
"I am pleased to complete our staff with the hiring of Erin Floyd," said North Texas Head Coach Karen Aston. "I found it vital to surround this program with people that share my passion for excellence. Erin played for me at Charlotte and I am well aware of her loyalty to the game and to me as a coach. I am thrilled she has chosen to begin her coaching career with the Mean Green."
As a student assistant coach under Aston, she helped Charlotte earn a trip to the 2011 WNIT Semifinals, which included tournament wins over South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. The 49ers finished with a 27-10 record and a third place finish in the Atlantic 10 during the 2010-11 campaign.
As a player, Floyd was a three-year starter for the 49ers, and retired as the co-leader for career games played for Charlotte. Charlotte made the postseason each of her four seasons as a player, averaging over eight points in each of her last three seasons. Floyd won the Golden Nugget Award after 2007-08 and 2009-10, given to the Charlotte player that exhibits the most dedication and determination.
