LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andy Enfield has hired two assistants to work with him as he takes over Southern California's men's basketball program.

Tony Bland joins the Trojans after spending the last two seasons as an assistant at San Diego State, where he helped his alma mater reach the NCAA tournament both years. He played basketball at Westchester High in Los Angeles, before starting his college playing career at Syracuse before transferring to San Diego State.

Jason Hart comes to USC from Pepperdine, where he was an assistant this season. Before that, he was head coach at Taft High in suburban Woodland Hills. Hart attended Inglewood and Westchester highs before playing at Syracuse, where he and Bland were teammates for two years. Hart played nine years in the NBA before retiring in 2010.
