On the day the Pac-12 Conference men’s basketball tournament began, USC announced Wednesday it has extended head coach Andy Enfield’s contract through the 2027-28 season.

“We are thrilled to announce that we have signed Andy to a new six-year contract,” USC Athletic Director Mike Bohn said in a statement. “Andy has continued to meet and exceed every expectation we have set for him. In our three years working together, our men’s basketball program has enjoyed unprecedented success and the national landscape of college basketball has taken notice. That is a testament to Andy’s leadership of the program, our coaches and support staff, and our talented basketball players.

“Andy’s incredible accomplishments stand on their own. We are excited about the trajectory of our men’s basketball program with regards to results, recruiting, and the development of the young men on our team. We are committed to continuing to enhance and strengthen our program as we move ahead, and we are looking forward to the immediate opportunity to make another March Madness run.”

The Trojans amassed a 25-6 record this season, the most wins it has ever achieved in a regular season. The team enters the conference tournament in Las Vegas seeded third.

Enfield was named Pac-12 Coach of the Year last season, when the Trojans advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA tournament.

“I am so proud of the success our players have had on the court and academically,” Enfield said in a statement released by the university. “… I also want to acknowledge how fortunate I am to be surrounded by outstanding coaches and staff, and would like to recognize our fans and students because their enthusiasm and energy have been tremendous assets.

“My family and I are very happy to be part of the Trojan Family. I feel great about the future of USC basketball in the Pac-12 and nationally.”

Enfield has an overall record of 182-116 at USC.
