#DunkCity to replace Andy Enfield with Kansas assistant Joe Dooley

Apr 17, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT


Florida Gulf Coast has made a decision.

They will be replacing Andy Enfield with Kansas assistant coach Joe Dooley, who turned down the Hofstra job earlier this month.

Dooley has helped lead Kansas to 300 wins in the ten years that he’s been on Bill Self’s staff. He also won 57 games in four years as the head coach at East Carolina in the late ’90s.

Dooley is walking into a good situation at FGCU. The Eagles lose Sherwood Brown to graduation, but they return their next top four scorers. FGCU will also add Georgia Tech transfer Nate Hicks and former top 100 recruit and Marquette transfer Jamail Jones next season. Throw in the fact that Brett Comer, Bernard Thompson and Eric McKnight are only sophomores, and Dooley should have a good chance to win a lot of games in the coming years.

    Dang! Way to go Kavanagh!

    I was at the Banquet Monday celebrating the season and Kavanagh was talking about keeping Alico Arena filled to the brim during the upcoming season; even to the point where they are in discussions to double the size from 4,500.

    They needed to make another splash to retain the players, transfers and commits and i’m pretty sure they just did. You can count me in for season tix!!
