Many were expecting Enos to be Saban's newly sworn-in offensive coordinator for Alabama, and now has deviated from that expectation by accepting the vacant Miami position.
The University of Miami announced early Friday afternoon that Alabama quarterbacks coach/associate head coach Dan Enos, 50, is the man who will take over as the Hurricanes offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Prior to his time at Alabama, Enos served as the offensive coordinator at Arkansas and was integral in the development of quarterbacks Austin Allen and Brandon Allen during his three years in Fayetteville.
A former quarterback at Michigan State, Enos boasts more than a decade of play-calling experience and more than two decades of experience coaching skill position players. Enos is coming off a season where Tua Tagovailoa was the Heisman runner-up and the Crimson Tide offense broke nearly every single-season offensive record in program history.
All eyes now turn toward Alabama backup quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is expected to transfer and has already been linked to Miami through social media. The relationship the two developed could continue at Miami where the Canes are one of the possible suitors for the hottest free agent in college football. "His experience as a head coach will also provide invaluable insight to our entire program". Five coaches from the 2017 staff were not on the field in 2018, and the Crimson Tide still ran the table leading up to the College Football Playoff National Championship loss to Clemson.

"I couldn't be more excited to join a program as rich in tradition as the University of Miami", Enos said in UM's release. 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.
Nick Saban hired six assistant coaches a year ago.
New Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz has his offensive coordinator. Instead, Miami lured back their guy and promoted Diaz to head coach. He also served as the head coach of the Central Michigan Chippewas from 2010-14. It was a much-needed change as last season saw the Hurricanes finish towards the bottom of all Power 5 schools offensively, including 66th in points per game and 113th in passing yards per game.
The Hurricanes new head coach just landed a huge assistant. The Dearborn, Mich., native and his wife Jane, have two children, Lia and Alex.
