Report: Enfield being targeted by USC
A mere 12 hours or so after his team was eliminated from the NCAA tournament following a star-kissed run, Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield is being courted by USC.
This news comes via Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. Enfield has been the coach at FGCU the past two seasons and brought the program to its first NCAA tourney appearance this year.
Sources say the Trojans are targeting the 43-year-old Enfield, who is 41-28 at FGCU. While Enfield, a former Florida State and NBA assistant coach has few recruiting ties to the West Coast, USC is intrigued by not only his success and potential, but his preferred uptempo style of play. ... A source said talks between the school and coach are expected to begin this weekend.
That's what two wins in one big tournament can get you. Despite only two years of head-coaching experience, Enfield would be considered a home run no matter where he landed specifically because of what transpired over the first weekend in the NCAA tournament.
Friday night, Enfield told a group of reporters that he "hadn't even thought about that" yet, in regard to his coaching future.
