Cinderella Florida Gulf Coast University earned its ticket for college basketball’s Sweet 16 tonight.
Florida Gulf What?
Gossip Extra investigated after FGCU dispatched San Diego State to basketball hell, and the most interesting about the Fort Myers school’s hoopsters are probably the gazillionaire coach and his supermodel wife!
Check this out: Eagles coach Andy Enfield, 43, was a great ball player himself. He played for Johns Hopkins University and still holds the NCAA record for best career free throw percentage.
But then the guy went into business instead of pursuing a basketball career and invested in a software company.
He’s obviously a millionaire several times over because by the time he left the company, it was worth $100 million!
Enfield took a giant a gamble by leaving a Wall Street life for, eventually, a $157,000-a-year coaching gig in a college with fewer basketball fans than most high schools!
Wife Amanda Marcum? That’s another story, one that the television cameras are loving!
Have you noticed how many times she pops up on the screen during FGCU games — and she’s just in the stands!
Yep. Negligees, bras, panties, dominatrix outfits — the works!
Just that alone should have sports fans hope for a FGCU win against University of Florida at Cowboys Stadium Friday in Arlington, Texas!
