Dan Enos was in line to be Alabama's new offensive coordinator after Mike Locksley left to take the head coaching job at Maryland. But instead of leading Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy, Najee Harris and the rest of the talented Crimson Tide, he made a lateral move and joined first-year Miami coach Manny Diaz with the Hurricanes.
He reportedly did it in the dead of the night.
According to a report from Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, Enos cleaned out his office at Alabama without anybody on the coaching staff knowing — not even coach Nick Saban. To Saban's surprise, when he showed up on Jan. 11 to interview candidates to replace recently-departed offensive line coach Brent Key, who left to take the same role at Georgia Tech, Enos was nowhere to be found and his office had been cleaned out. He was announced as Miami's offensive coordinator later that day.
Enos took to Twitter to dispute the report that he left Saban and Alabama high and dry.
In this game of he said/he said, who should you believe? If you want to get down to semantics, it is worth noting that Enos said in his tweet that he wouldn't leave an employer without telling "them," not "him." So who did he tell? If Saban was blindsided by the move, it clearly wasn't him.
