(USATODAY.com) - Florida Gulf Coast's Andy Enfield will be the new coach of the University of Southern California Trojans, the school announced Monday night.
Enfield and his "Dunk City" style of offense drew national attention as he led the Eagles, a No. 15 seed in the NCAA tournament, to the Sweet 16 with upsets of No. 2 seed Georgetown and No. 7 seed San Diego State. Over the weekend, the coach was reported to have drawn interest from USC.
The school made it official on its athletic department's Twitter account:
In a statement, Enfield said:
"My family and I are thrilled to join the Trojan Family and be part of the unparalleled athletic tradition at USC ... In meeting with Pat Haden, I was very impressed with his vision for the men's basketball program. I am looking forward to bringing an exciting, up-tempo style of play to USC and building the men's basketball brand into one that the fans and basketball community will enjoy and respect."
Enfield has a career coaching record of 41-28 in two seasons at FGCU. He takes over a Trojans squad that went 14-18 and 9-9 in the Pac-12 this past season. The school fired previous coach Kevin O'Neill in January.
