This is a great opportunistic time for Andy Enfield and the Trojans men's basketball program. Yes, they have recruited and last year's Elite 8 was amazing. This year's team, the cardiac kids, seems to play into the pace and level of its opponents and then tries to wake up and dominate ⅔/s of the game at times. But this month we saw Athletic Director Mike Bohn pull off the right move at the right. Extending Coach Enfield through 2028 was exactly the right move and message to the team and recruits. Let's not forget that this staff is on an amazing roll when it comes to recruiting. Coach Enfield is getting his appropriate rewards and we cannot forget the level of effort and results of AD Bohn. They go hand in hand when it comes to building programs. Maybe it's time for AD Bohn to get a nice bonus?
