Talks rumored to start this weekend. Seems like an interesting route for us to go, definitely would generate buzz around the program.
*I know this was posted in the old Enfield thread but this way more people will hear what is going on
A mere 12 hours or so after his team was eliminated from the NCAA tournament following a star-kissed run, Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield is being courted by USC.
Thanks for the new thread. I'd be excited.
“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.
Hope he gets an assistant who knows the West Coast recruiting scene.
Pat Haden was being criticized for his lack of movement on the BB HC position and here we are with Andy Enfield out of the tournament and now reported USC contacts are coming public.
Makes sense, go after a coach deep in the tournament and that necessitates a wait to begin negotiations.
Perhaps Pat is not as incompetent as some would like to make him out to be?

My source tells me that who SC hires will bring much needed up tempo fire to the offense..no more KO style boring BBall! Definite work is being done to bring in a very good coach. Multiple top tier contacts were made, not just the one. I can definitely tell you that significant efforts are being made to upgrade all sports at SC. The search for the baseball coach is also ongoing ..nothing is being overlooked!
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Certainly up-tempo pace sounds right!
As an aside, anybody else having problem opening the Alford to fucla thread on this page? I've tried several times but unsuccessfully each time.
Sometimes, you just know when the eyes have it.
Yep, I keep getting the error OOps page too.
Thanks, maybe the n. korean/bruins are hacking the site to block the page from being viewed by Trojans. lol
I get the oops page too.
Back on topic: am I the only who doesn't understand what Enfield has done to deserve our consideration? He would be a below average hire imo. Of course, he could turn out to be great, but why would we take a chance on him when we all know the administration is willing to put the money behind a proven commodity? With what we reportedly offered Dixon, surely we can pick up someone with a better track record than Enfield.
Although, we would easily have the hottest duo of collegiate major sports wives ever in the history of the universe.
This ... now you get it ...
They're talking about Andy Enfield on SportsCenter.
He makes $157,000/yr. FGCU is 'prepared to double it in an attempt to keep him.'
I think we can beat that.
It seems that the other viable option based on the reports that have come out at this time, is Hopkins from Syracuse. I guess, between the two, Enfield would have the stronger resume for having the 2 year head coaching experience.
Frankly, I have no problem with either candidate nor with Tim Floyd if he were to be rehired as the BB coach. .
I have to go on mobile for that thread.
LOL ... I would agree ....
Thanks for the tip. I will give it a try on my mobile.
Not likely that Floyd is being considered as a candidate at this time.
Money is not an issue with this guy. He is already rich.
Maybe, maybe not:

FGCU told me Andy Enfield's wealth has been WAY overstated. He's not a millionaire, according to his FGCU boss. #usc
Don't know a rich guy who isn't interested in getting richer. Maybe up 3 to 5 times richer a year, anyway. Let's just hope this isn't more about timing than money.
I think he would need to start hot at USC to gain momentum, otherwise the FGCU story gets forgotten. I think he can but it'll be a challenge.
