USC's 21 victories in the regular season led all Pac-12 teams and only six Division I teams won more games before the postseason. Enfield has guided the Trojans to a 154-109 record in his eight seasons as USC's head coach, the fourth most wins in school history. He also has set the best single-season, two-year, three-year, four-year, five-year and six-year records and has the Trojans currently ranked No. 23 in the Associated Press poll. USC's 131 wins over the last six seasons ranks 15th overall among all Power 5 conference schools. Enfield was name the Pac-12 Coach of the Year last week.
