USC hires Eric Mobley to join coach Andy Enfield's staff
LOS ANGELES (AP) Southern California coach Andy Enfield has dipped into the AAU ranks for an assistant coach.
Eric Mobley, who has guided AAU teams for the last 11 years, joined USC on Saturday.
The addition of Mobley allows Martin Bahar to return to being the team's director of scouting, a role he held the previous two years before becoming an assistant this season after Tony Bland went on administrative leave in September.
Bland was arrested as part of the college basketball bribery and corruption case. He pleaded not guilty to four charges relating to bribery and wire fraud and was fired in January.
Mobley coached the AAU Compton Magic 16-and-under team last year and ran the Triple Threat AAU youth basketball program since 2007. The 49-year-old played collegiately at Portland and Cal Poly Pomona.
He also played on pro teams in Portugal, Mexico and Indonesia, as well as in the World Basketball League and on Meadowlark Lemon's Harlem All-Stars.
