Alabama Football: Dan Enos In Line For Promotion

Alabama football coach Nick Saban appears ready to promote someone on his staff in the midst of Mike Locksley’s departure. Locksley, who served as offensive coordinator under Saban, accepted the head coaching position with the Maryland Terrapins.
Locksley also brought Alabama offensive analyst and former Tennessee head coach Butch Jones along to College Park.
That left a big vacancy on Nick Saban’s staff, but he already has the man for the job.
According to a report from Football Scoop, Saban’s plan is to promote associate head coach and quarterbacks coach Dan Enos to offensive coordinator. Enos was previously offensive coordinator under Bret Bielema at Arkansas and head coach at Central Michigan for five seasons. Enos also served as offensive coordinator at North Dakota State (2003), D-II Missouri State (1999), D-II Northern Michigan (1996), and D-III Lakeland College (1994-95).
While at Central Michigan, Enos recorded a 26-36 overall record but led the Chippewas to two bowl game appearances.
“Enos is a really well regarded pro-style offense type of mind in a landscape where those type of guys are becoming harder and harder to find,” the report read. “In Enos, the Tide may return to the more traditional pro-style ground attack that churned out Heisman Trophy winners Derrick Henry and Mark Ingram, and that could look really interesting with Tua coming back for at least another year.”
Alabama is currently ranked No. 1 in the nation and is preparing for a meeting with the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners at the Capital One Orange Bowl on Saturday, December 29. Kickoff at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
