Manny Diaz hires Alabama assistant Dan Enos as offensive coordinator

Hurricanes have new offensive leader so will Jalen Hurts follow him from Alabama

Quarterback issues have plagued the Miami Hurricanes for some time now, and with this hire, Diaz is looking to turn over a new leaf and develop a high-powered offense to compliment the meteoric rise of his already dominant defense. By bringing in Enos, a quarterback coach, and discussing transfer quarterbacks, he clearly means it. Enos and the staff he and Diaz put together will bring much-needed changes to The U.

Enos was head coach at Central Michigan from 2010-14, leading the Chippewas to a 26-36 record and two bowl games.

"Dan was my primary target for our offensive coordinator position from the outset and I'm thrilled that he's now a Miami Hurricane", Diaz said in a written release.

UM's announcement of its OC came less than two weeks after Diaz fired Miami's entire offensive coaching staff. Diaz was hired to replace retiring UM coach Mark Richt on December 30.

"His experience as a head coach will also provide invaluable insight to our entire program", Diaz said.

Enos spent the 2018 season as associate head coach and quarterbacks coach under Nick Saban. Enos lasted three seasons with the Razorbacks under Bret Bielema.

Enos succeeded former Cincinnati and Tennessee Coach Butch Jones in Mount Pleasant.

Locksley became head coach at Maryland. For his career, Hurts has 1,976 rushing yards in three seasons.

Hurts is a dual threw quarterback who also ran for 167 yards and two touchdowns in 2018. Then Enos joined the exodus. The aforementioned Fisher was selected first overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 draft and has started 90 of 94 games in his six seasons with the Chiefs. He tutored three National Football League running backs in East Lansing - Javon Ringer, Edwin Baker and Jehuu Caulcrick - and was named one of Rivals.com's Top 25 recruiters nationally in 2009. Former offensive coordinator Mike Locksley took the head coaching job at Maryland, wide receivers coach Josh Gattis was named the offensive coordinator at MI this week and offensive line coach Brent Key joined the Georgia Tech staff.

This past season, Enos oversaw arguably the greatest season by a quarterback throwing the football in College Football History. He completed 72.9 percent of his passes for 765 yards, eight touchdowns, two interceptions and a 196.7 passer rating.

Enos graduated from Michigan State with a degree in business administration in 1991 and earned his master's in sports administration in 2006.
