Florida Gulf Coast coach's supermodel wife is from Mustang

You can bet there will be some people in Mustang closely watching the NCAA Tournament action in Philadelphia on Friday.

And we’re not talking about OU fans.

No. 15-seed Florida Gulf Coast will have a pocket of fans in Mustang — where the wife of the team’s head coach, Andy Enfield, was born and raised — pulling hard for an upset of second-seeded Georgetown in the 5:50 p.m. game.

Amanda Enfield — then known as Amanda Marcum — grew up in Mustang, but left at 18 years old to move to New York City to pursue a modeling career. Since then, she has been in such magazines as Maxin, Vogue and Elle. She has modeled for Armani, Victoria’s Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and many others, with her work taking her all over the United States, Europe and Asia.

A big Oklahoma State basketball fan, she met her husband when she was in Boston to watch the Cowboys at a 2003 NCAA Tournament second-round game. Their first date was to watch St. John’s play in the NIT.

Andy Enfield was out of coaching when they met. He had been an assistant for the Boston Celtics for three seasons, among other jobs, but went into private business for a few years. He got back into coaching as an assistant at Florida State in 2006, and landed the FGC job in 2011.

The couple has three kids, Aila, Lily and Marcum.

Here’s a story we wrote about Amanda when she was just starting her modeling work in Mahattan.

And here’s a story from The Naples News about her and her husband, right after he was named the head coach at FGC.
