Ethernet/Wi-Fi - Hostapd prevents Ethernet from getting DHCP address

I hope I'm posting correctly.
I have a custom build project using an Intel NUC with a wirless card and
ethernet port as a AP for clients to connect to. The ethernet is just a
connection to the machine and the two are not bridged.
I was running CentOS 6.5 and it was working fine. I changed it to CentOS 7
to get a feel for the new OS and get my brain wrapped around the new
commands and architecture.
I had to compile hostapd from source since it isn't in the CentOS 7 repo. I
had few problems getting the system setup. After I rebooted, I found the
ethernet port didn't have a DHCP address and I couldn't get it to snag
one. I thought because I was running dhcdp locally but that wasn't it.
Once I stopped hostapd I was able to get an IP on the ethernet port.
I am wondering if I could get a point in the right direction as to why and
how to get around it if possible. I could make the hostapd a manual start
after the device starts up but I'd rather not.
Thank you for your time,
