On Friday, athletic director Jen Cohen introduced Eric Musselman as the new USC basketball coach. He replaced Andy Enfield, who left after coaching the team for eleven years. Also, Cohen contacted Musselman, who previously worked at Arkansas and had his first losing season there.

According to basketball betting reports, the Trojans’ 15-18 overall record and 8-12 Pac-12 record was their first losing season in five years under Enfield.

Musselman is pressured to fill coaching positions and assemble a team roster. Guard Boogie Ellis’s eligibility has expired, while junior Kobe Johnson announced on Thursday that he had committed to crosstown foe UCLA. Bronny James, son of NBA star LeBron, announced his intention to enter the transfer portal and declare for the NBA draft on Friday. He will also be eligible to play college ball.

Isaiah Collier, a standout freshman who may announce his transfer intentions, was present at the press conference and lingered beyond to speak with Musselman. After Enfield’s departure, adjacent Harvard-Westlake guard Trent Perry, named a McDonald’s All-American, de-committed from USC. However, Perry stated that he was still considering playing for the Trojans.
