Andy Enfield just became one of the most desirable coaches in all of college basketball.
If you don’t know who that is, he’s the head coach of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, the No. 15 seed that just knocked off No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA tournament.
The school he’s coaching at?
It has existed since 1991. The star of Friday night’s performance was Eddie Murray, a 6-foot-8 senior that threw down a series of vicious dunks on the Hoyas. He was born in 1989. He’s older than the school.
The program that Enfield is currently coaching only became Division I six years ago, and he already has them in the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. That’s impressive.
It’s impressive enough that Enfield may have finally become the most desirable member of his household.
And now, thanks to how quickly and how effectively he’s built that program, he may be more wanted nationally than his wife.
Now THAT is impressive.
