Hurricanes tab Bama QB coach Enos as new OC


The Miami Hurricanes are hiring Alabama quarterbacks coach Dan Enos as its new offensive coordinator, sources told ESPN.

Enos spent the 2018 season on the Crimson Tide staff after three years as Arkansas‘ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. The 50-year-old had been expected to take over as Alabama’s primary offensive coordinator after the departures of Mike Locksley to Alabama and Josh Gattis to Michigan.

Instead, he joins the staff of new Miami coach Manny Diaz, who celebrated the hire Friday on Twitter.

Enos also has been head coach at Central Michigan and held coordinator posts at North Dakota State, Missouri State and Northern Michigan. His departure to Miami could increase the Hurricanes’ chances of landing Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is likely to leave as a graduate transfer.

Hurts has entered his name in the NCAA’s transfer portal and will consider Miami among other schools, sources told ESPN.

Diaz also had considered former North Carolina coach Larry Fedora and former Houston coach Major Applewhite for the offensive coordinator spot. He fired Miami’s offensive staff from the 2018 season after being named head coach.

Alabama’s offensive staff has lost four assistants since the CFP championship game loss to Clemson, as offensive line coach Brent Key departed for Georgia Tech. Running backs coach Joe Pannunzio and tight ends coach Jeff Banks, who also oversees special teams, are Saban’s only remaining offensive assistants.
