March Madness Run Guides Andy Enfield to USC, Texas Tech Hires Tubby Smith
Late on Monday night, news emerged from the west coast that USC had found a new head basketball coach.
The name tabbed to that position was none other than Florida Gulf Coast’s Andy Enfield.
Enfield has quickly become a hot name within college basketball only recently. He lead 15 seeded Florida Gulf Coast on an epic Cinderella run in this year’s NCAA Tournament and it was only last Friday when the Eagles’ run finally came to a close. Florida Gulf Coast became the seventh 15 seed to ever advance out of the Round of 64 and then the first to qualify for the Sweet 16.
The coaching philosophy behind Dunk City however, is now bound for Southern Cal.
From USC’s perspective, the hire is a good one as long as Enfield can recruit in California. The up-tempo style of play could certainly be a turning point for the Trojans’ program, if that’s the case.
In other coaching news, Texas Tech also named a new head coach on Monday. Former Minnesota head man Tubby Smith will be introduced to the Red Raiders’ program at a Tuesday afternoon press conference from Lubbock.
Smith, who led the Gophers to a victory in this year’s NCAA Tournament was fired just a week ago and now the 61-year old faces a difficult assignment in rebuilding a Texas Tech program that has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2007.
While the big name and potential payoff with Smith could be good for Texas Tech, there is no denying the toughness in the job. Smith will have his work cut out for him and fans will certainly have to be patient while he attempts to rebuild the program.
Is this a good hire or not for Texas Tech?
Well, only time will tell in this case.
