Just hours before Miami is slated to finish the 2019 season in the Walk-On’s Independence Bowl, a report of a major staff change broke.
According to Tim Reynolds of The Associated Press, barring a major change of heart, Miami and OC Dan Enos are expected to have a mutual parting of ways.

A veteran reporter, Reynolds has reported news on the Miami Hurricanes among many other organizations in his career.
For Miami, this would fit what needs to happen to maximize the offensive output, and be a step toward aligning the offensive scheme with the best qualities of the talent on the roster. Miami needs to use a more spread approach, and it has become clear that Enos does not desire to run such a system. As such, it makes sense for Miami to look elsewhere at OC.
Furthermore, Manny Diaz fired THE ENTIRE OFFENSIVE STAFF following last season when he became head coach, citing the failing of the offensive performance in 2018. The offense coordinated by Enos has been demonstrably worse across the board in 2019. If that’s not reason to part ways, I don’t know what is.
