Hurricanes hire Alabama's Enos as new OC
The Miami Hurricanes have hired Dan Enos as their new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, head coach Manny Diaz announced on Friday.
Enos spent last season as the associate head coach and quarterbacks coach for the Alabama Crimson Tide, which reached the national championship game.
"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. "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."
He was briefly added to Michigan's staff as wide receivers coach last January before leaving to join Alabama.
Enos spent the three seasons prior as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Arkansas.
The 50-year-old former Michigan State quarterback praised Diaz and thanked Alabama coach Nick Saban in a statement.
"I couldn't be more excited to join a program as rich in tradition as the University of Miami," Enos said. "Coach Diaz has a clear vision for this program as we move forward and it's an honor to help build the Hurricanes in his image. This was an opportunity I felt I couldn't pass up.
"I also want to express my sincere appreciation to Nick Saban and the Alabama program for giving me the opportunity to coach there this past season. I learned so much during my time there and I will always be grateful."
Enos inherits redshirt sophomore quarterback N'Kosi Perry, who split time with Malik Rosier last season and passed for 1,091 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.
He also inherits an offense that finished 105th in the country in total yards and 113th in passing yards per game.
