There Is A Tangible Buzz Around The USC Men's Basketball Program
July 24, 2013
Since Andy Enfield was named the head coach of the USC men's basketball program in April there has been a tangible buzz about the program which has spread from coast to coast over the airways and on national television. With the amazing success in a short time at FGCU and the skills he has developed while working as a shooting coach, NBA assistant and collegiate assistant at Florida State, Enfield has caught the eye of America. Some would say it is his supermodel wife, Amanda, that has captured the nation's attention, but when you throw in Enfield's success in the business world, it is no wonder there have been references comparing him to the Dos Equis "Most Interesting Man in the World" spokesperson.
A quick glance at Enfield's resume shows nothing but success: high school valedictorian, Johns Hopkins all-time leading scorer, NCAA all-divisions all-time leading free throw percentage (92.5), 1991 NABC Scholar Athlete of the Year, successful All Net Basketball shooting company, NBA shooting coach, NBA assistant coach and an assistant and top recruiter at Florida State, producing three-straight Top 10 classes and three trips to the NCAA tournament. Then Enfield led FGCU in just its second year of eligibility to the Sweet 16, the first No. 15 seed to advance that far.
With all that coach Enfield brings to the table, it is no surprise that USC has been mentioned in many scouting services as being one of the finalists with many of the top-rated recruits.
Here is a list of several of the media entities which have taken an interest in the USC-Andy Enfield story in the four months he has led the program:
