USC and head men’s basketball coach Andy Enfield have agreed to a contract extension that runs through the 2021 season, per an announcement from AD Pat Haden that was reported by the AP.
Enfield, 46, just finished his third season with the Trojans and went 21-12 (9-9 Pac-12), leading USC to its first NCAA Tournament since 2011. USC lost to Providence in the first round, but it was a step forward nonetheless.
Enfield first came to USC on a six-year deal following the 2013 NCAA Tournament, in which he led little-known Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet Sixteen thanks to stunning wins over heavily favored Georgetown and San Diego State. Now, it’s looking like that was no fluke as USC wants to keep him around.
Enfield has also proven to be a solid recruiter, as the Trojans have four-star shooting guard Jonah Mathews set to join the roster for the 2016-17 season.
Needless to say, USC basketball has experienced a rebirth under Andy Enfield, so it’s only right that he be rewarded accordingly.
