USC Men’s Basketball Head Coach Andy Enfield Receives Contract Extension Through 2027-28
LOS ANGELES — Ninth-year USC men's basketball coach Andy Enfield, who has led the 2022 Trojans to the winningest regular season in school history, has signed a contract extension through the 2027-28 season, USC athletic director Mike Bohn announced today (March 9).
"We are thrilled to announce that we have signed Andy to a new six-year contract," said Bohn. "Andy has continued to meet and exceed every expectation we have set for him. In our three years working together, our men's basketball program has enjoyed unprecedented success and the national landscape of college basketball has taken notice. That is a testament to Andy's leadership of the program, our coaches and support staff, and our talented basketball players. Andy's incredible accomplishments stand on their own. We are excited about the trajectory of our men's basketball program with regards to results, recruiting, and the development of the young men on our team. We are committed to continuing to enhance and strengthen our program as we move ahead, and we are looking forward to the immediate opportunity to make another March Madness run."
We are excited about the trajectory of our @USC_Hoops program under Andy Enfield's leadership and look forward to continuing to grow our basketball tradition at USC! #FightOn ✌️ https://t.co/BQuuELei2I

Said Enfield: "I am so proud of the success our players have had on the court and academically. I want to thank President Carol Folt, Mike Bohn, Brandon Sosna and Paul Perrier for their support. Their impact on our program has been significant. I also want to acknowledge how fortunate I am to be surrounded by outstanding coaches and staff, and would like to recognize our fans and students because their enthusiasm and energy have been tremendous assets.
"My family and I are very happy to be part of the Trojan Family. I feel great about the future of USC basketball in the Pac-12 and nationally."
No. 21 USC, seeded third heading into this Thursday's (March 10) quarterfinal game in the Pac-12 Tournament, sports a 25-6 overall record in 2022, its most regular season victories ever.
Last season, when Enfield was the Pac-12 Coach of the Year (USC's first honoree since 1992), USC went 25-8 and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for just the second time in 67 years.
During Enfield's tenure, the Trojans set the school season win record (26 in 2017) and have had the most wins in program history in 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-year periods. His 5-game winning streak over crosstown rival UCLA was USC's longest versus the Bruins since 1943.
Enfield's overall USC record is 182-116. The Trojans' 72 victories in the past 3 seasons are the third most among Power 6 schools and their 60 Pac-12 wins in the last 5 seasons are second most in the conference. In the past 7 years, USC has won 68% of its games (159-75), including 6 seasons with at least 21 wins (in the 40 years before that, USC won at a 50% rate and won 20 games just 6 times).
Enfield has brought in 7 consecutive Top 30 recruiting classes, and next season's class is ranked sixth nationally. A Trojan has been a first round selection in the last 3 NBA Drafts, including back-to-back lottery picks (Onyeka Okongwu and Evan Mobley).
