Dan Enos was announced Friday as the new leader of the Miami offense, coming to the Hurricanes after one season as quarterbacks coach and associate head coach at national runner-up Alabama.

All of that prompted Diaz to fire all of Miami's offensive coaches shortly after he took over.

Hurts has plenty of suitors, including Washington State, TCU, Maryland, among others, but Miami makes the most sense for immediate playing time at a program that desperately needs help at the position. Enos has 28 years experience as a football coach. However, in that one season, the Tide set all kinds of offensive records behind wunderkind quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, a dominant offensive line and a nasty group of receivers and running backs. He lost his job following Bielema's firing after the 2017 season.

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.

Enos was one of the driving forces behind an Alabama offense that set the program record for total offense (522 yards per game) and scoring offense (45.6 points per game) in 2018.

"Dan was my primary target for our offensive coordinator position from the outset and I'm thrilled that he's now a Miami Hurricane".

Enos also has been head coach at Central Michigan and held coordinator posts at North Dakota State, Missouri State and Northern Michigan.

"His experience as a head coach will also provide invaluable insight to our entire program", Diaz said.

Despite the reports of Enos being soon promoted to replace former Alabama OC Mike Locksley, now the Maryland head coach, he also was being pursued by Georgia.

This past season, Enos oversaw arguably the greatest season by a quarterback throwing the football in College Football History.

Veteran quarterback Malik Rosier, who alternated starts with rising redshirt sophomore N'Kosi Perry, graduated and exhausted his eligibility after appearing in eight games last season, completing 53 percent of his passes for 1,053 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions. Hurts is visiting Miami this weekend, according to Barry Jackson.

Enos spent two years as quarterbacks coach at Cincinnati (2004-05), helping quarterback Gino Guidugli finish his career as the school's all-time leading passer with 11,453 career yards, including 2,633 passing yards and 26 passing touchdowns in 2004.
