A New Head Coach Is Exactly What the USC Trojans Needed

The USC Trojans haven’t necessarily been a powerhouse in college basketball or anything near that. Something needed to be done for this program and a new coach is exactly what this team needed.

Andy Enfield will take the sidelines in the 2013-14 college basketball season for the Trojans and he should fit in very nicely. Coming into this season, Enfield was not the biggest named coach in the world, but he definitely made a name for himself in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

In case you already forgot, Enfield coached the No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast Eagles to history in the dance. Not a single No. 15 seed has ever made it to the Sweet 16 in the Big Dance. That was until the Eagles made history by beating Georgetown and San Diego State in back-to-back games, which led this team to the round of 16.

Although Florida Gulf Coast did not make it any further, its mark in the tourney was already placed in the history books.

Why would people not want to play for Enfield after that? USC plays in a power conference in the Pac 12. Just imagine what Enfield can do with some high quality recruits. Not saying his players were bad at Florida Gulf Coast because that is definitely not the case, but he was able to take a No. 15 seed to the Sweet 16. Just imagine what he could do with some 4-star and possibly some 5-star recruits.

Enfield wants his players to have fun and that is exactly what USC needs. The Trojans did have a much better season than it did last year, going from six wins to 14, but this team needs a serious makeover and it all starts with their new head coach who will do wonders for this basketball program.
