Central Michigan HC Dan Enos is leaving to become Arkansas OC


Central Michigan head coach Dan Enos is leaving Mount Pleasant to become Bret Bielema's offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach at Arkansas.

Enos, who took the head coaching job at Central Michigan in 2010 following the departure of Butch Jones, had an overall record of 26-36 and an 18-22 mark in MAC play. He held a 1-1 mark in bowl games, and was never able to lead the team to a higher finish than 4th in the conference standings.

Prior to accepting the head job at Central Michigan, Enos served as the running backs coach at Michigan State (2007-2009), and also coached the quarterbacks (2006). His previous stops on the offensive side of the ball include stops at Cincinnati, North Dakota State, Western Michigan, Missouri State, Southern Illinois, Northern Michigan, and Lakeland (D-III - WI).

The new gig at Arkansas will mark Enos' first stop in the SEC. He made $360,000 leading the chips, and will almost certainly make considerably more in as the offensive coordinator for the Razorbacks.

“We are thrilled to have Coach Enos joining us in Fayetteville. Dan is a great fit for our program. He runs a pro-style offense and brings expertise at the quarterback position as both a player and coach. We played against each other in college and he was a very intelligent and talented quarterback who showed great toughness and leadership. He has an outstanding reputation and will be a tremendous asset for Razorback football.” Bret Bielema noted of the hire.

Enos takes over for Jim Chaney, who left to become the offensive coordinator at Pitt under Pat Narduzzi.

After speaking with a number of people, here's our take on why Enos left CMU, and where they go from here.
