Greg LaFleur
Athletic Director Southern University

Greg LaFleur, Southern University's new Athletic Director, is a former LSU staffer in LSU's athletic department. He will replace Floyd Kerr, who lost his job when the university decided not to renew his contract. That contract expires at the end of June. LaFleur comes to Southern from Chicago State University where he headed up the athletic department. The 1981 LSU graduate also played six years as a tight end in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Indianapolis Colts.

He returned to his alma mater in 1991, and worked his way up from marketing and promotions coordinator to Associate Athletics Director. While at LSU, he led the university through the Peterson vs. LSU Title IX Federal Court lawsuit, one of the pivotal cases in Title IX law.

He then moved on to serve as Athletics Director at Texas State University-San Marcos in 2001, where he led an all-time record setting improvement in basketball home game attendance and significant attendance improvements in football. He also led a 20 million dollar facilities expansion program. He briefly led the Huston-Tillotson College's program in Austin, Texas, in 2004 before moving on to take the athletic director position at Chicago State.
