SHALLOTTE, NC (WECT) - West Brunswick Athletic Director John Floyd will retire effective March 1, 2013.

"I just came to a point where I have to start doing things differently."  Floyd said.  "I've taken care of other kids for the better part of my life, I need to take the time for my own family."

Floyd said he informed West Brunswick principal Brock Ahrens of the decision within the last week.

"I've worked at other schools that were battleships, this is the loveboat"  Floyd said.  "It's just time for me to do something else and be with my wife, I owe her that."

Floyd indicated he also has health issues that need to be addressed.

"It's nothing that's going to kill me, at least I'm not going to let it get to that."

Ahrens does not have a specific date to have a new AD in place and plans to advertise the vacancy on the Brunswick County Schools and NCHSAA websites.

In his second stint as athletic director at West Brunswick Floyd's most recent tenure began in 2008 when he replaced Marcia Heady who is currently the assistant principal at South Brunswick High School.

"He has created, in a short period of five years, an outstanding athletic program and facilities at West Brunswick High School." Ahrens said. "His greatest ability lies in the way he is able to get things done –move people in a common direction even if it's mentoring a coach our building an athletic facility."

"I've been here for 17 years, all of them weren't great but I really feel we've got something special going on here.  I'm hoping somebody will come in, make whatever changes they feel are needed to make West Brunswick even better."
