USC interested in UFGC's Enfield

The SportsXchange

Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield is being targeted by USC to be its next coach, Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel reported Saturday.

Enfield led the surprising Eagles to a historic run in the NCAA Tournament. UFGC was the first No. 15 seed to advance to the Sweet 16.

USC fired Kevin O'Neill during the season.

Fox News reported that Enfield's home in Fort Myers, Fla., is for sale.

Enfield's up-tempo system, known as "Dunk City," is making him an attractive coaching candidate for bigger programs like USC that are in search of a new coach.

The 43-year-old is a former Florida State and NBA assistant coach. The Trojans are reportedly interested in Enfield's recent success and preferred style of play.

UFGC is 41-28 over the last two seasons since Enfield took over the program two years ago.

Enfield was an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics from 1994-2000, then assisted at Florida State assistant starting in 2006 before taking over at UFGC in 2011.

Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins is also a candidate for the Trojans job.
