Andy Enfield used to drive by the Southern California campus while visiting his brother who lives in the area.

Now he's running the Trojans' basketball program, a job that athletic director Pat Haden describes as a "turnaround situation."

Enfield calls it "an unbelievable dream, something that I've been working towards for many, many years."

The 43-year-old coach was introduced Wednesday at Galen Center, where he'll be tasked with making men's basketball relevant at a school dominated by its nationally renowned football program.

Enfield comes from Florida Gulf Coast, which caused a stir by reaching the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament as a No. 15 seed.

He says that to get a job like the one at USC, a coach has to prove he's a winner and he thinks he's done that.
