USC basketball coach Andy Enfield took over head coaching duties at Trojans with a lot of work to do. His job isn’t necessarily done yet, but he’s done a good enough job to warrant the extension that USC brass has inked him to.
This week, the official site of the USC Trojans confirmed that Enfield would be locked up long-term.
After taking over a team that went 14-18 the previous season, Enfield has led the Trojans to two straight 20+ win seasons and NCAA tournament appearances. Prior to his arrival, it hadn’t won that many games since the 2008-09 season. As a result of leading the Trojans to the most wins in program history this year, 26, Enfield signed an extension that will carry him through the 2023 season.
Coach Enfield is setting records in the classroom, too. Three times in his four year tenure, the Trojans have re-established a record for the highest average GPA in a semester. With success in every facet conceivable for a collegiate basketball coach, extending his contract was a no-brainer for USC athletic director Lynn Swan.
“With Andy Enfield as our head coach, we have built consistency and stability in our men’s basketball program,” said Swann. “Extending Andy’s contract will allow that consistency and stability to continue. The record-setting season we just had is proof that Andy has established the USC program as an annual contender on the national level.”
Yes, it’s that Lynn Swan.
USC might become a basketball school before too long.
