(CBS News) FORT MYERS, Fla. - Many will be watching the NCAA men's basketball tournament on CBS. But even non-fans can appreciate the story of a coach who is out to beat the exceptional odds.
Even by his own rather lofty standards, Andy Enfield is having quite a week.
Enfield is the coach of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles. No team ranked so low in the NCAA tournament has ever gone this far.
"You're in the final 16 teams in the country," Enfield told his team in the locker room. "When you started this year you were predicted to be in the bottom 16 in the country."
Asked what it felt like to be heading to the Sweet Sixteen and his players chanting his name after they recently won, Enfield replied: "It was just a great thrilling moment of my life."
Which is saying something since Andy Enfield has the kind of touch Midas would envy. He holds the NCAA record for foul shooting. Enfield spent four years as an assistant coach in the NBA in his 20's, before a short detour at a health care start up made him a millionaire.

But basketball was still his passion. So he returned to coaching and got the job at Florida Gulf Coast two years ago.
And along the way, he married a fashion model.
"We both feel -- especially her -- the spotlight should be on our team and our university," said Enfield. "So we're somewhat embarrassed by a lot of the attention," he said.
As for whether this matches what he anticipated when was dreaming about this kind of thing, Enfield said: "I don't think you can ever anticipate what we're going through this week. I would never have even thought about this."
