Miami hires Alabama quarterbacks coach Dan Enos as Hurricanes offensive coordinator

Kevin Durant Warriors

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.

Enos' departure to join new Miami coach Manny Diaz's staff could increase the Hurricanes' chances of landing Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is likely to leave as a graduate transfer.

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. The Chippewas were 26-36 in Enos' five seasons.

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

Mass overdose in California leaves 1 dead, 12 hospitalized
Over the past few years, Fentanyl has increasingly been responsible for overdose deaths across the United States. Fentanyl is "50 to 100 times more potent than morphine", according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Mike Locksley was the actual offensive coordinator, Josh Gattis was the co-offensive coordinator and it was understood that Dan Enos was the offensive-coordinator-in-waiting to replace Locksley. Enos lasted three seasons with the Razorbacks under Bret Bielema. He lost his job following Bielema's firing after the 2017 season. Enos is a former head coach at Central Michigan who spent three years as the offensive coordinator at Arkansas before going to Alabama for the 2018 season. In his final two collegiate seasons, Enos completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,744 yards, 13 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.

"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 the release announcing the hire Friday. "Dan is one of the most innovative play-callers in college football and he not only has a remarkable track record of coaching quarterbacks, but also developing players for the NFL at numerous positions. His experience as a head coach will also provide invaluable insight to our entire program".

Enos has more than 20 years of coaching experience under his belt, coaching skill players and over 10 years of play-calling experience. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa become the most prolific passer in Tide history after throwing 43 touchdowns, averaging 264.4 yards per game and setting an FBS single-season passer rating record at 199.44.

Diaz could not comment specifically on Hurts since he has not signed with Miami. We do not care who plays quarterback for us. In 2016, running back Rawleigh Williams earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2016 after posting seven 100-yard rushing games and amassing 1,360 yards on the ground. But if Hurts transfers to Miami to follow Enos, he would be the unquestioned starter.
