Andy Enfield, the new USC basketball coach best known for taking Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet 16 last year and being married to a former Maxim model, let a reporter for Men’s Journal tag along recently to a meeting with boosters and held nothing back. Enfield is a confident man – most millionaires are – and based on these quotes, I’m sure the handshake with new UCLA coach Steve Alford on Jan. 5th will be a delightful one.
“I don’t worry about them,” said Enfield with a smile. “I’ve made it to one Sweet Sixteen in two years, and he’s made it to one Sweet Sixteen in 18 years.”
Zing. What’s not to love about Andy Enfield?
Oh, he even took a dig at former USC coach Tim Floyd – the two beefed over a recruit recently – which you should enjoy as much as I did, even if you don’t care one iota about Tim Floyd:
“Tim Floyd shows up every day at work and realizes he lives in El Paso, Texas,” said Enfield. “And he’s pissed off that he didn’t get the USC job two months ago.”
That’s so true. El Paso is a dump. Enfield is my kind of coach. I’m going to pull my Harold Miner jersey out of mothballs and root for the Trojans this season.
