Enfield Looking For Players Who Are Long, Can Run, Play Defense Like Who Go To Duke

Andy Enfield left Florida Gulf Coast after a successful tournament run to become head coach at USC.

At Florida Gulf Coast, Enfield ran an up-and-down- NBA style that became known as Dunk City.

"I'm looking for players who are long," said Enfield. "Players who can run and play defense. Players like who go to Duke."

Enfield has a relaxed style of coaching, similar to that of an NBA coach.

"You try to teach the kids that the game is most fun when you put together both offense and defense. I don't think yelling works unless you have a presence like a Bobby Knight. And I definitely don't. My vision in college basketball is it needs to be fun. It needs to be fun for the players and for the fans."
