 Andy Enfield Biography

In just one season at the helm of the program, head coach Andy Enfield has changed the landscape and mindset of FGCU men's basketball. Enfield was appointed the second-ever head coach in Florida Gulf Coast men's basketball history on March 31, 2011.

Taking the sidelines for the first time in his career as a head coach in just the program's 10th year of existence, Enfield led FGCU to the championship game of the Atlantic Sun Tournament in the school's first year of Division I postseason eligibility. The Eagles finished with a program Division I record 15 wins, becoming just the sixth team in the 33-year history of the A-Sun Tournament to advance to the championship game in its first appearance in the postseason.

FGCU's run to the championship game that was aired on ESPN2 saw the No. 6 seed Eagles take down No. 3 seed USC Upstate in the quarterfinals before stunning a sellout Mercer home crowd of 3,497 fans in the semifinals with a 62-58 victory over the host and No. 2 seed Bears to advance to the championship. FGCU nearly became the first team in A-Sun history to defeat the top three seeds in the A-Sun Tournament, but fell to regular season champ Belmont after leading, 42-39, at the half.

Enfield's expertise in the art of shooting the basketball paid big dividends for the Eagles, as they finished 39th in the nation in three-pointers per game (7.8) and 49th in three-point field goal percentage (37.4) - both of which were program Division I records. With Enfield's up-tempo, fan friendly style of offensive installed, FGCU averaged 72.1 points per game, a 6.4-point improvement from the previous season and also a program D-1 record.

Junior Sherwood Brown turned a breakout junior season under Enfield and his staff's direction, earning A-Sun All-Conference second team honors. Brown was one of just two players in the A-Sun to rank in the top 10 in scoring at rebound, nearly doubling both averages from the previous year. Two members of Enfield's first recruiting class at FGCU also landed on the A-Sun All-Freshmen team in guards Brett Comer and Bernard Thompson. Comer led the A-Sun in assists, while Thompson was also a CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major.com Freshman All-American.

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome Andy, Amanda, and the rest of the Enfield family into FGCU, Southwest Florida, and our Eagles' athletics family," said Director of Athletics Ken Kavanagh during Enfield's introductory press conference in March of 2011. "A quality individual, Andy is a proven winner and brings to FGCU a tremendous wealth of experience and coaching success, on the both the collegiate and professional ranks."

"In particular, he possesses a background of demonstrated commitment to excellence both on the court and in the classroom. In turn, we look forward to him providing energized daily leadership to our student-athletes, quickly getting engaged with our growing fan base and rapidly putting us in pursuit of the upper echelon of the Atlantic Sun Conference and beyond."

Prior to coming to Southwest Florida, Enfield spent the previous five years as an assistant coach at Florida State, helping FSU to three consecutive NCAA Tournaments (2009-11), including the Sweet 16 in 2011.

Enfield joined head coach Leonard Hamilton's staff at Florida State in 2006. The Seminoles appearances in three straight NCAA Tournaments were the program's first since 1998, as they accumulated 31 wins in ACC action over that span -- second-most behind Duke -- and advanced to the program's first-ever ACC championship game in 2009. With three straight 20-win seasons to its credit, FSU advanced to the 2011 Sweet 16 in the Southwest Region by defeating No. 10 Texas A&M and No. 2 Notre Dame in Chicago.

Recruiting and player development were chief among Enfield's responsibilities at FSU where its 2010-11 roster boasted 11 top 100 recruits and a pair of McDonald's All-Americans. In 2009, Basketball Times named Enfield the nation's "Most Visible Assistant Coach" for the summer recruiting period, while ESPN The Magazine donned him one of "Five Super Assistant Coaches in College Basketball" during the 2008-09 campaign. Enfield's prowess on the recruiting trails helped the Seminoles produce three straight top 25 classes, highlighted by the 2008 group that ranked in the top 10.

A former NBA assistant with the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks, Enfield's influence helped FSU develop five NBA draft picks over five seasons. Al Thornton (2007) and Toney Douglas (2009) were both selected in the first round and earned Associated Press All-American status while leading the ACC in scoring. In 2011, Chris Singleton became the Noles' third first round pick in the last five years when the Washington Wizards took him with the 18th overall pick.

A key ingredient to FSU's success was its ability to play defense, as the Seminoles became the first team since the 1990-92 Georgetown clubs to lead the nation in defensive field goal percentage two straight seasons from 2009-11. In 2010-11, the Seminoles limited their opponents to 36.3 percent shooting from the field to lead the nation for the second year in a row. With Singleton and Douglas, FSU had the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in two of Enfield's last three seasons, while 2010 NBA second round pick Solomon Alabi was runner-up.

Prior to his five years in Tallahassee, Enfield began his coaching career in the NBA from 1994-1996 where he served as the shooting coach for the Milwaukee Bucks and head coach Mike Dunleavy. While in Milwaukee, Enfield worked with four-time NBA All-Star Vin Baker and No. 1 overall pick Glenn Robinson.

Enfield continued his NBA career as an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics under head coach Rick Pitino from 1998-2000. Enfield worked closely with then-rookie Paul Pierce who went on to win the 2008 NBA Finals MVP award. With the Celtics, Enfield increased his duties on the bench to developing game plans and scouting reports, assisting in practice strategies and offensive player development. Known for his shooting expertise, Enfield helped the Celtics shoot 74.5 percent from the free throw line in 1999-2000, a 5.3 percent increase from the previous year for the biggest improvement in the league.

After his stint with the Boston Celtics, Enfield became a player development consultant for several NBA teams, while running his own company called "All Net Basketball" which focused on improving shooting technique and offensive skills. Over his time as a consultant and shooting instructor, Enfield coached more than 100 NBA players.

During his collegiate playing career at Johns Hopkins University, Enfield set the all-time NCAA career free throw percentage record with a mark of 92.5 percent (431-466). Enfield still holds nine career records at Johns Hopkins and was inducted into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. He led the team in scoring in all four seasons en route to a program record 2,025 career points thanks to the top two single-season point totals in school history with 606 points in 1990 and 610 points in 1991.

As good as he was on the court, he was just as sharp in the classroom, as the economics major earned GTE Academic All-America first team honors as a senior and second team honors as a junior. He was the first basketball player at Johns Hopkins to earn an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and was named the NABC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1991.

Enfield and his wife Amanda, have two daughters; Aila and Lily, and son, Marcum.
