FORT MYERS, Fla. - Just days after the Eagles NCAA run ended, the players lost the coach who helped them make history.
"He was a good influence on us, he helped us develop beyond what we thought we were, no body thought we would be where we were."
Jim and Donna Sublett of Fort Myers have supported the team as both fans and boosters. They say they're not surprised Andy Enfield is leaving, but that doesn't take the sting away.
"Right now, I'm a little saddened, disappointed that we didn't have Andy longer," said Donna Sublett.
The Subletts said they're happy for Enfield and his family, but fear the coach won't be the only Eagle to fly the coop.
"What's going to happen to the other coaches? Are we going to keep the players?" she said.
Ultimately they said they trust the school's president and athletic director to find a new coach and similar success twice in two years.
"The same people who got Andy are still in charge and they're still doing the hunting so they had good performance last time. Good performance is a pretty good indicator of what might happen in the future," said Jim Sublett.
