UM reportedly set to part ways with OC Enos
SHREVEPORT, La. —
The Dan Enos era in Miami will last just one season, according to a report.
Enos, the Hurricanes offensive coordinator, and the team are expected to part ways following Thursday’s Independence Bowl, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reported in a tweet about two hours before kickoff for Miami’s bowl game against Louisiana Tech in Shreveport, Louisiana.
“Barring a significant change in plans, the Miami Hurricanes and offensive coordinator Dan Enos are expected to part ways after today’s Independence Bowl,” Reynolds’ tweet said.
When approached, Miami did not offer comment.
UM coach Manny Diaz also declined to comment after the game.
“Press conferences are not where we make staff evaluations,” Diaz said. “I have nothing to add on that.”
Enos came over to Miami after being Alabama’s quarterbacks coach last season. Under his direction, the Hurricanes’ offense finished the regular season last out of 130 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in offensive third-down success rate and gave up the fourthmost sacks.
The Hurricanes also were No. 120 in both rushing offense and red-zone offense.
Brevin Jordan out: Miami sophomore tight end Brevin Jordan, apparently still hampered by his left foot injury, sat out the Independence Bowl and did not dress on Thursday.
Jordan, one of three John Mackey Award finalists for the nation’s top tight end this season, also missed two of the Hurricanes’ final three games this season against Louisville and FIU. He attempted to play briefly in the regular season finale at Duke but appeared to aggravate the injury and made an early exit.
