Andy Enfield is bringing Dunk City to Los Angeles. The USC athletic department tweeted Monday evening to announce that the school has hired Enfield to fill their coaching vacancy. SI’s Pete Thamel reported about an hour earlier that the two sides were close to finalizing a deal. The report comes as no surprise. Yahoo! Sports’ Dan Wetzel reported Saturday that Enfield was USC’s top choice to fill their head coaching vacancy. The LA Daily News’ Scott Wolf also said Enfield was expected to interview with the program this week. Enfield led Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet 16 in the school’s first NCAA tournament appearance. The No. 15 seed Eagles thrilled fans with a high-flying attack that resulted in the team receiving the nickname “Dunk City.” You have to figure the exposure Enfield received this March for his team’s success and exciting style will energize fans in Los Angeles. Enfield’s supermodel wife would also compete with Lane Kiffin’s wife for the title of most attractive coach’s spouse. This is a phenomenal hire for the Trojans. UCLA hired Steve Alford Saturday, USC hired Enfield Monday, and CSUN reportedly is hiring Reggie Theus. You could certainly make the case that of the three hires in the city, UCLA got the worst end. I was hoping the Bruins would be the ones to hire Enfield.
