Florida Gulf Coast’s Andy Enfield will be the new coach of the University of Southern California Trojans, the school announced Monday night.
Enfield and his “Dunk City” style of offense drew national attention as he led the Eagles, a No. 15 seed in the NCAA tournament, to the Sweet 16 with upsets of No. 2 seed Georgetown and No. 7 seed San Diego State. Over the weekend, the coach was reported to have drawn interest from USC.
Enfield was earning $157,000 a year at Florida Gulf Coast, but according to a source with direct knowledge, the USC deal will pay him “well over $1 million a year.”
The 43-year-old coach was 41-28 in his only two seasons as a head coach at FGCU in Fort Myers, Fla. He led the Eagles to a school-record 26 wins this season, including upsets of No. 2 seed Georgetown and No. 7 seed San Diego State as a 15th-seed in the NCAA tourney. They lost to Florida last Friday.
