USC To Target Florida Gulf Coast’s Andy Enfield For Head Coaching Job
Speculation about Andy Enfield’s future at Florida Gulf Coast has been swirling all week, and now after being knocked out of the NCAA tournament last night by The University of Florida, suitors are beginning to line up.
Yahoo Sports has reported that Enfield is The University of Southern California’s top target. USC is interested not only in Enfield’s potential, which was shown in his ability take the first ever 15th seed to the Sweet 16, but also his entertaining up-tempo style of play.
Enfield, who formerly was an assistant at Florida State and in the NBA, is said to have few recruiting ties to the West Coast, but that has not deterred USC from going after the coach that gained the national spotlight during his tournament run. Sources say talks between the school and the coach are likely to being this weekend. Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins is also said to be a candidate.
What better place for a charismatic, Maxim model toting coach than the City of Angels? It will be interesting to see whether Enfield runs for the hills, or stays loyal to the program which he said it is his mission to build.
