Head Men's Basketball Coach, USC
Andy Enfield, 44, a proven winner as a player, assistant coach and head coach, was named the USC men's basketball head coach on April 1, 2013 and immediately brought a tangible buzz to the program.
Enfield captivated the nation as the head coach at Florida Gulf Coast University as he guided the first No. 15 seed into the NCAA Sweet Sixteen with impressive wins over No. 2 seed Georgetown and No. 7 seed San Diego State and introduced the world to "Dunk City," the nickname for FGCU's high- flying and high-speed offense which often ended with thunderous dunks. Enfield was 41-28 in his two seasons (2012-13) at FGCU, with the 41 victories equaling the program's combined total in the four years before he arrived. His squads played an up-tempo offense that featured spectacular dunks and alley- oops as well as a defense that thrived on takeaways. The Eagles scored 70-plus points 25 times in 2013 and ranked 16th nationally in steals (8.9 per game). Prior to going to FGCU, Enfield spent the previous five years (2007-11) as an assistant coach at Florida State, helping the Seminoles to three consecutive NCAA Tournaments (2009-11), including the Sweet 16 in 2011. Those were the program's first NCAA trips since 1998. FSU posted four 20-win seasons during his time on the staff (including in his final three seasons) and won 31 Atlantic Coast Conference games, the second-most behind Duke during that span. The Seminoles advanced to the program's first-ever ACC championship game in 2009. In 2010 and 2011, FSU became the first program since Georgetown (1991-92) to lead the nation in defensive field goal percentage two straight seasons.
Enfield began his coaching career in the NBA, serving as the shooting coach for the Milwaukee Bucks for two seasons (1995-96). He then was an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics for two seasons (1999-2000). Enfield played four seasons (1988-91) at Johns Hopkins, scoring a program- record 2,025 career points. He set the NCAA all-divisions career free throw percentage record (92.5, hitting 431-of-466 shots). He was a Division III All- American third teamer in 1991 and was inducted into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. He was a GTE Academic All-American first team selection as a senior and second teamer as a junior. He was the first basketball player at Johns Hopkins to earn an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and was named the NABC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1991. He earned his economics degree from Johns Hopkins in 1991. He has a master's in business administration from Maryland. He prepped at Shippensburg (Penn.) High, where he was the class valedictorian.
Enfield was born on June 8, 1969. He and his wife, Amanda, a former model based in New York City, have two daughters, Aila and Lily, and a son, Marcum.
