Andy Enfield has been USC’s head coach since the 2013-14 season. There has been some speculation that Enfield, 52, could be interested in leaving USC for the Maryland job. In an interview this week on Sirius XM, Enfield addressed being linked to the Terrapins’ opening. While Enfield dismissed the speculation as internet chatter, he didn’t rule out any future moves.

“That’s part of the business,” Enfield said. “It’s an honor to be mentioned at other places. It’s not the schools. It’s just people on message boards, the media, etc. because you’re doing well at wherever you are. That’s a credit to our coaching staff and to our players because we’ve built something here (at USC) that’s hard to do. Same thing at Florida Gulf Coast. Those players were special. A head coach is only as good as your staff you hire and work with everyday and then your players.

“We don’t look at the distractions. It’s flattering at times, but at the same time, it can be distracting if you let it. We’re so focused on what we do. I don’t read message boards. I’m not on social media, and I’m not even on Twitter. I’m very secluded from some of the things that you might think. I came in this morning, and I watched three hours of Washington video. What’s going on in the outside world, I don’t see it like most people. We just try to stay focused and do what we need to do to try to win games here at USC.”

Enfield led the Trojans to a 25-8 record and trip to the Elite Eight in 2021. USC is currently 21-4 on the year.
