Report Suggests University Of Minnesota Has Reached Out To FGCU’s Andy Enfield

Published on March 31, 2013 by admin   ·   2 Comments

A few weeks ago, 99.9% of the basketball world had never heard of Florida Gulf Coast University or their head coach Andy Enfield. Enfield burst onto the national stage after his team, in just the second year of NCAA eligibility qualified for the NCAA Tournament and then made a historic run to the Sweet Sixteen. FGCU becamse the first 15-seed to advance to the Sweet 16.

With Enfield and his team’s success playing out on the national stage, his name has now become a hot commodity. One rumor suggested yesterday that USC is interested in Enfield while FGCU wrestles with trying to figure out how to give Enfield a raise in the confines of their small budget.

Now another report suggests that Enfield has been contracted by the University of Minnesota as a replacement to head up their basketball program. ABC KSTP reported the news.

The Eagles returned home to Southwest Florida on Saturday to hundreds of fans cheering them on. Enfield was asked by members of the local media about his future, but he deflected any questions, stating he wanted to take some time to relax after the whirlwind two weeks.

Enfield told members of the local media in regards to the rumors,”Anytime you are successful in this business, it’s just natural. My personal life and my family’s personal life have been under scrutiny the last week, week and a half, that we just want to take a break, take a deep breath, realize what our team did for this university and this community, and we’ll go from there in the next few days.”

FGCU athletic director Ken Kavanugh disputed the report, “I have not heard a word”, he responded when asked about the rumor. “Whatever happens is going to happen, and we’re not going to worry about things until things get in front of us. We’re not worried about this stuff.
