OFFICIAL: Please welcome Andy Enfield (@CoachEnfield) to the #TrojanFamily as the new head coach of @USC_Hoops. #DunkCityUSC
Seriously, you're gonna rip something from Florida Gulf Coast? You're better than that, USC.
Ever been that meteoric of a rise by a coach in about a two-month span?
Katz reporting Enfield will make over $1M a year. Mind-blowing.
Happens every year. Hope it works out for him and we all look like idiots
$156,000 to $1,000,000 would be a 540% pay raise.

Look at you, and your fancy business major math.
With graduation a month away, I figured I need to start showing people I picked up a thing or two.
Congrats to him and I hope he does well.
Feels like a reach.

Why a reach? Who else was USC going to get to coach their team that would add excitement? Would it be better to hire a retread head coach that is available? I saw on twitter some USC folks questioning the hire. USC needs to understand that this is basketball at USC -- UCLA had to settle for its 3rd or 4th option with Alford and USC is a long way from UCLA in basketball.
This guy has NBA credentials. Was the assistant coach at Florida State when the team was seen as dead only to go to 3 NCAA tournaments. He then took FGCU to the sweet 16 in its 2d year at Division I. He coaches an exciting brand of basketball and apparently really knows how to coach shooting.
Sure, without the NCAA run this doesn't happen but same could be said for the the head coach at Miami that was a lifer at George Mason -- that seems to have worked out okay. VCU and Butler's coaches have great situations and big time contracts/school support.
I like the move -- it has risks but it is better than hiring Tubby Smith or some other retread head coach.
Ha Ha. You're right about the meteoric rise. I loved the story of Florida Gulf Coast, but coaching was only part of it.
U$C buying their next Golden Goose they hope. Living in LA amongst so much U$C-ness can be fatiguing at times.
Nebraska Old Gold Knights
Jim Lurranega who was at George Mason had a record of 273-164 (.625 winning percentage) and 4 conference titles before he left 4 years after the Final Four Run
There's nothing wrong with Andy Enfeld taking the USC job, I know USC could have done alot better
Kind of wonder how fast his resume would have gotten pushed aside a month ago compared to now.
I get what you mean, but Smith was Enfield at one point too.
Yeah, the tourney run undeniably has a ton to do with it.
I agree I hope he doesnt flame out at USC, but i would have liked to see him sustain some consistent success first
I realize that but no one would give Coach L a shot until he had a run in the NCAA tournament with George Mason. Did he all of a sudden become a better coach or did someone (Miami) decide to take a risk on a coach from a relatively small time program?
Who could USC have gotten as a coach? The last two hires were Tim Floyd and Kevin O'Neill -- those guys had success but the price of that success was rule breaking and NCAA sanctions. USC basketball program is at the mid to bottom of the Pac-12. Why not take this risk? And Enfeld may be inexperienced as a head coach but that doesn't make a different hire a better coach.
Personally I'm a HUGE Gregg Marshall fan, Id have also called Reggie Theus, Marvin Menzies from New Mexico St and Tommy Amaker
Thanks -- I asked because I wasn't sure of coaches that might be available. Appreciate you providing some names.
I agree that Marshall and Menzies look like good coaches as well and would have been good choices for USC. Enfeld is the youngest of these guys. He certainly benefited greatly by a 2-game run.
I don't see Tommy Amaker as a good choice. He had 10 years of big conference coaching with relatively limited success. He was given a shot as a young, rising coach and didn't really seize it. He may still succeed at the highest level.
I like Reggie Theus but I don't know much about his coaching ability.
Theus really turned New Mexico St around before Menzies kept it going.
Marshall and Menzies would have been my first choices
and i always like intelligent debating
