Dan Enos leaving Wolverines to coach Crimson Tide QBs

Adjust Comment Print

Dan Enos, the former Central Michigan head coach who agreed to be an offensie assistant at Michigan last month after a three-season stint as Arkansas' offensive coordinator, has reportedly accepted a job on Nick Saban's staff at Alabama.

Enos joined Jim Harbaugh's ranks two weeks ago as an offensive assistant, and while his contract specified his role as coaching receivers, the program had not revealed his official position.

Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reported Thursday that Enos would take the job at Alabama and return to the SEC.

This comes on the heels of previous reports less than an hour earlier that Enos was a "strong candidate" to leave for the Tide.

Beautiful, warm Friday followed by rain on Saturday
Seasonably colder air will continue to build into the area for Tuesday as Canadian high pressure starts to approach from our west. Rain totals are around a quarter of an inch or less, so this will help out with the ice jam threat to the Susquehanna River.

Enos, the former Central Michigan head coach and most recently Arkansas' offensive coordinator, signed a four-year contract with Michigan that offered considerable flexibility in terms of title and salary.

By accepting this job with MI before taking his talents to Tuscaloosa, Enos essentially erased the non-compete clause in his contract.

MI fans will speculate that the reason for leaving could be related to the job prospects of OC Tim Drevno and Passing Game Coordinator Pep Hamilton.

This move does open up a spot on the MI coaching staff to offer a full time role to former OSU OC Ed Warinner, who MI hired this week as a non-coaching "offensive analyst".
