Amanda Marcum Enfield is the wife of Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield, and she gained notoriety this week when her supermodel past was brought to light. Florida Gulf Coast is 24-10 and received an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament after winning the Atlantic Sun conference tournament. They are a 15-seed and play No. 2 seed Georgetown at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Friday. The Eagles have received an incredible amount of attention for a 15-seed, and it’s mostly thanks to Enfield’s model wife. We and many other sites wrote about Amanda Marcum Enfield earlier this week after a 2011 Naples News article on her and her modeling past became publicized. The Oklahoman’s Stephanie Kuzydym spoke with Marcum Enfield during Florida Gulf Coast’s practice Thursday about her surge in fame. Marcum Enfield told Kuzydym that the attention she has received this week was weird. “It has been. It’s completely unexpected. I did not see this coming at all,” Marcum Enfield told Kuzydym. Marcum Enfield grew up in Mustang, Okla., about 15 miles away from Oklahoma City. She became a big Oklahoma State athletics fan, and told The Oklahoman she likes Oklahoma State football a little more than basketball. She and Andy actually met 10 years ago when she was trying to get to Boston to watch the Cowboys’ second-round NCAA Tournament game. Through a friend, Amanda hitched a ride with Andy to the game in Boston. Six months later, they were engaged. They now have three children together. Since becoming a mother and moving to Florida, Amanda says she has mostly given up modeling. “Since we moved away from New York, I kind of just gave it up,” Marcum Enfield told The Oklahoman. “That’s really where I needed to be to continue. I like being with my kids. I miss it but I like being home with them and taking care of them. It would be a job where I would have to be gone a lot for.” Amanda’s impressive modeling resume includes work for Maxim, Vogue, Elle and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She definitely gave up a lot for her family life, but she says she does not regret it. As for Andy, well, he is accomplished in his own right. The NCAA’s all-time leader in free throw shooting percentage during his career at Johns Hopkins, Enfield has worked as an NBA assistant coach for the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks. Prior to being hired by Florida Gulf Coast, he was a top assistant at Florida State.
