Tai Brown with Nick Florence at NACDA

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

New 1.Q contributing host Tai Brown caught up with Baylor Director of Athletic Development Nick Florence during last week’s NACDA Convention in Orlando. Florence, who had a sterling career on the FB field for the Bears, covers his transition to athletic administration, including challenges along the way, who he’s learning from, how he’s constantly crafting his skills, and how to mentor former student-athletes who transition to the administrative side of the business. Key quote from Florence: “Production matters.”
