    That was excellent. I had no idea that he was valedictorian of his Johns Hopkins graduating class. That's unbelievable (and more impressive than the business/ start-up experience that gets brought up from the media guide). Just a terrific coach who we are lucky to have here.

      Yeah, got a chance to listen as well. Guy's really just been a winner his whole life haha...

      Pretty impressive dude. I really liked the insight on recruiting as well.

        He's making the rounds this week. Another interview (shorter but still great to see coach represent our school so well):

          Just listened to the Jed Hughes podcast. CAE really is very classy & intelligent. We are very fortunate to have him as our Head Coach. Said great things about UCLA - has great respect for Mick Cronin, their tradition/history & all of their players who he admitted he & his staff recruited and knows them all well + their families.

          Great listen. Enjoyed how he explained the art of shooting & improving one’s mechanics & trajectory. He’s also willing to adapt to his personnel rather than trying to force them to play a certain defense or a particular offense. Very refreshing. Can’t wait to see where we finish down the stretch. This is a special team. Fight on!

            I love the mutual respect between Cronin and Enfield... I think I enjoy it a bit more while we continue to beat them every year... But I hope the players get the chance to scrim in the off-season and play with each other cause they're all talented and it just makes LA bball that much better.

          Great podcast. He touches on some things that we have mentioned on this board. Recruiting when your school has little basketball tradition and not much fan support takes quite a leap of faith.

            Fantastic podcast. I actually loved hearing his insights on shooting. Describing a shooter's touch as similar to a finger print and mentioning that a shooter is reluctant to change their form until they hit rock bottom. Also, how they handle game pressure effects their shooting (which we pretty much knew but he is confirming how some guys are great in practice the not so much with the pressure of a game). I would have liked him to talk more about FT shooting. His insights on building the brand of USC Basketball from where he began 8 years ago to now were very enlightening and actually make me feel bullish for the future. Change coaches? That means you have to start over. Not a good idea at this juncture of the program.

              Trojan2021 no doubt. A lot of these players have either known either for a very long time, played alongside each other, or against each other in High School or in the AAU circuit. Most of them have the same trainers and participate in open runs. The Socal/LA Hoops community is a strong & healthy brand. Like CAE mentioned,
              no reason why both USC & UCLA can’t be great simultaneously. Fight on!

                Enfield's contract is up in 2023 and his agent is getting him in front of ADs. Hope Bohn gives USC's basketball coach the resources it warrants to compete on the national level.

                  Love Enfield. Hope we lock him up - he's done an awesome job of methodically building this program.

                  If Bohn really pumps resources behind the basketball program (unlimited recruiting budget, raises for assistants/support staff, etc.) things could get special. We've always been a sleeping giant.

                    Did Jed Hughes say he led the head coaching search that led to Enfield? I couldn't quite make out what he was saying

                      i believe so. USC has hired KornFerry several times to conduct their coaching searches. Most notably the Football one that brought Sark back.
