Dan Enos was rumored in December to be Saban’s choice for his next offensive coordinator, but that didn’t come to fruition. Instead, Enos will be coordinating the offense in Coral Gables:
“I couldn’t be more excited to join a program as rich in tradition as the University of Miami,” Enos said in the news 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.
“I also want to express my sincere appreciation to Nick Sabanand 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.”
Many are now speculating that Jalen Hurts will follow his preferred QB coach, and it seems to be a decent fit. The ‘Canes already have a four-star dual threat redshirt sophomore QB in N’Kosi Perry, but he was fairly awful in his first action last season.
Saban is looking at a complete overhaul on the offensive side at this point, and there are rumblings that he may make some changes on the defensive side as well. Where he goes for replacements is anyone’s guess.
It’s a bit disheartening that such a young staff will be turned over after only one season together, but this is nothing new for Saban. He very nearly won a national title in a year where he had to replace a ton of starters, and next year will have as experienced a roster as we’ve seen in a few seasons. The staff will be critical to help them reach their goals.
In any case, good luck to Dan in his new role.
