This thread, born well before the chatter got seemingly louder.
Nice crystal ball there, TW
SC would have the hottest set of wives in the history of college athletics.
I was thinking the same thing, just wasn't going to post it.
LOL you guys....yet another reason to like Andy.
Sure hope the weekend smoke we're reading about, turns into a roaring fire with this guy next week.
Have to imagine his talents for teaching and developing talent quickly, will hit new heights with the support and all that goes with the unlimited resources this university can arm him with, as well as the playground with which he'll have to recruit here in his own, new backyard, not to mention other parts of the country with his recent and well-publicized success.
I like the way Haden is thinking here, and I've said the same thing in multiple posts- the uptempo style will play well in LA and generate a lot of attention. Local kids will be pumped up to play in that style offense in front of friends and family.
From CBS Sports:
"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.
This news comes via Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. Enfield has been the coach at FGCU the past two seasons and brought the program to its first NCAA tourney appearance this year.
Sources say the Trojans are targeting the 43-year-old Enfield, who is 41-28 at FGCU. While Enfield, a former Florida State and NBA assistant coach has few recruiting ties to the West Coast, USC is intrigued by not only his success and potential, but his preferred uptempo style of play. ... A source said talks between the school and coach are expected to begin this weekend.
That's what two wins in one big tournament can get you. Despite only two years of head-coaching experience, Enfield would be considered a home run no matter where he landed specifically because of what transpired over the first weekend in the NCAA tournament.
Friday night, Enfield told a group of reporters that he "hadn't even thought about that" yet, in regard to his coaching future."
If true, I hope people will now give Pat Haden some freakin' credit.

I hope we can make this happen pronto!! At least, ucla had already hired their new coach, so we don't have to compete with them for Enfield.
Sometimes, you just know when the eyes have it.
He is a great young coach, but he has only been a head coach for two years. The lack of experience worries me. He has only coached in a small conference. Also, he does not recruit in California. He would be a great choice in three or four years, but right now he is young.Unless Pat Haden wants him to learn on the job as he has with Lane Kiffin this hire may be a huge risk. He will probably use USC as a school to build his experience before getting a bigger position. I want a coach who can build USC in a basketball team that plays in the tournament and wins.
I would rather want Greg Marshall who has coached college basketball for many years.
He can get in line behind me.
I made mention of that last week.
Imagine the recruiting dinners with those two hotties walking around in their summer dresses.

I will have to attend one of those dinners if we get Enfield on board. :)
I must admit, I am impressed with your "channeling" prowess. BTW, can U give me a heads up on the winner of the upcoming Kentucky Derby?
Weeee waaaant taaacos.....dum, dum, dum, dum, dum.....
Well-played senor...Pat should give you a crack at a half court shot at Andy's first home game.
