article imageFamed NCAA coach Andy Enfield shares his 'second act' with Slate

By Michael Krebs     May 16, 2013 in Internet
Following on Slate's Second Acts editorial theme, tech start-up wiz Andy Enfield explains how his experiences led him to coach an NCAA basketball team into the Sweet 16.
In the second installment of Slate magazine's Second Acts crowd-sourcing and editorial series, Florida Gulf Coast University's basketball coach Andy Enfield provides perspective on how his original experiences in his "first act" working as a vice president at a technology start-up provided the legs for his "second act" as an NCAA basketball coach for one of the most exciting teams to make it to the Sweet 16.
Well, maybe this time around the NCAA basketball gig could be seen as Enfield's third act, as his beginnings are found in basketball with a pivot to the business community and a pivot back to the sport he knows best, as the Slate profile explores.
F. Scott Fitzgerald once said that "there are no second acts in American lives," but it seems that Enfield is proving the famous author wrong.
Enfield's second act was particularly compelling, as he propelled an entirely obscure Florida Gulf Coast University to national prominence in the NCAA basketball tournament, sending the team to the esteemed Sweet 16.
Slate kicked off the Second Acts crowd-sourcing and editorial series with an examination of Ina Garten's transformation from a nuclear policy analyst to the Barefoot Contessa. The series will be composed of ten profiles and will include four videos in conjunction with the crowd-sourcing component.
