FT. MYERS, FL - Andy Enfield '91, the all-time leading scorer in Johns Hopkins men's basketball history and a 2001 inductee in the University's Athletic Hall of Fame, was introduced as the second-ever head coach at Florida Gulf Coast University on Wednesday.
Enfield makes the move to FGCU after five years as an assistant at Florida State University, where recruiting and player development were chief among his responsibilities. Enfield helped FSU advance to the last three NCAA Tournament appearances, including a Sweet 16 appearance just last weekend.

Enfield graduated from Johns Hopkins in 1991 with a degree in economics. The program's all-time leading scorer with 2,025 points, Enfield led the Blue Jays to a 68-40 (.630) record and back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 1990 and 1991. A two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American and 1991 NABC All-American, he earned a prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship in 1991. He still holds 18 school records, including career points (2,025), field goals made (680), three-point field goals made (234) and free throws made (431).
