Dunk City West: USC gets ready to run and gun under new coach Andy Enfield

Andy Enfield is the face of change at Southern California.

The coach who guided tiny Florida Gulf Coast on a surprise run to the final 16 of the NCAA tournament last season has relocated Dunk City to the West Coast.

Enfield is overseeing a major overhaul of the basketball program at a school where the Trojans' nationally prominent football team has always dominated. He'll be doing it with a few returning players and a bunch of newcomers, his gap-toothed grin being the center of it all.

The Trojans are just two seasons removed from a school-record 26 losses under Kevin O'Neill, who was fired in mid-January. Former assistant Bob Cantu replaced him and went 7-8, including losses in the team's final three games. Overall, the Trojans were 14-18 last season.
