(LOS ANGELES) — “Dunk City” is heading to Hollywood.
The University of Southern California has hired Andy Enfield as their men’s basketball coach after he led Florida Gulf Coast to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.
Enfield was earning $157,000 a year at Florida Gulf Coast, but according to a source with direct knowledge of the deal, USC is set to pay him well over $1 million per year over a six-year span.
“In meeting with (USC Athletic Director) Pat Haden, I was very impressed with his vision for the men’s basketball program,” Enfield said in a statement. “I am looking forward to bringing an exciting, up-tempo style of play to USC and building the men’s basketball brand into one that the fans and basketball community will enjoy and respect.”
The 43-year-old Enfield was 41-28 in his two seasons at Florida Gulf Coast.
