... FGCU's Andy Enfield. That would be trouble, in my most humble opinion ...
Do you mean that it is trouble because he is an unproven commodity? Or do you mean that it is trouble because he is a good coach? My thinking is that I'm not sold on him yet, and it could be a bad hire for USC. They should go after an established coach that can bring continuity to their program.
Enfield would be a big gamble with no recruiting chops but USC basketball is plain vanilla so I kind of like the gamble. They would be fun to watch. I heard Ben Howland submitted his name....
I think he's really good ... I mean, they've come out of nowhere. Clearly, he can identify talent. They really run their stuff. They are well-schooled, but they play loose.
And as for recruiting, as someone said, "Show me a coach's wife, and I'll tell you how good a recruiter he is."
Hah, you have a point there Mac. Enfield can clearly sell himself if he can get a smoking hot wife like he has.
Chip Kelly never married, so what does that tell us about him? That he had commitment issues?
And as far as USC becoming relevant again, I think it would affect UCLA and Arizona more than anyone, mainly UCLA.

Re. Chip Kelly: I'll paraphrase the quote and add another quote:
"Show me a coach's girlfriend, and I'll tell you how good a recruiter he is."
Here's the other one:
"Show me a good golfer, and I'll show you a poor basketball coach."
I'm not certain, but I believe Enfield has a financial stake in FGCU in some way other than his coaching contract. If I was serching I would go for the W st. coach. More proven commodity IMO
Hope he stays put. Wondering how they could pony up enough cash to keep him. Wichita State has a big, big donor base. They can afford to dig deep enough to keep Gregg Marshall ...
Some serious baller's in the state (Kansas, K-State, W-State) and no doubt their fans love and support their team. Interesting to see if Marshall will stay. Certainly more glamerous towns to live in than Wichita if that is a big motivating factor. On the other hand PAC-12 conference basketball seems to finally on the rise. Bring them on! Love what our coach is building at Oregon
