USC Basketball Undergoes Major Changes with New Head Coach
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andy Enfield is the face of change at Southern California.
The coach who guided tiny Florida Gulf Coast on a surprise run to the final 16 of the NCAA tournament last season has relocated Dunk City to the West Coast.
Enfield is overseeing a major overhaul of the basketball program at a school where the Trojans’ nationally prominent football team has always dominated. He’ll be doing it with a few returning players and a bunch of newcomers, his gap-toothed grin being the center of it all.
The Trojans are just two seasons removed from a school-record 26 losses under Kevin O’Neill, who was fired in mid-January. Former assistant Bob Cantu replaced him and went 7-8, including losses in the team’s final three games. Overall, the Trojans were 14-18 last season.
