On Monday afternoon, Manny Diaz announced that Jarren Williams had been named Rookie of the Week in the ACC.

Our managing editor, Cam Underwood, has the story below

The Hurricanes quarterback has yet to turn the ball over and has a staggeringly high 73.1% completion percentage through the first three games of his career.

Dan Enos, the Hurricanes offensive coordinator, was the head coach at Central Michigan, the Hurricanes next opponent, from 2010-2014 where he went 26-36 in his five years before stepping down to become the offensive coordinator at Arkansas.

“I was putting my heart and soul into the program and they were not putting their heart and soul into Dan Enos,” he said Monday afternoon to the media.

Enos also credited all the people that surrounded him at Central Michigan including the players, the operations, the staff and the trainers that helped make his time in Mount Pleasant special.

And the former head coach is certainly open to the idea of leading a program again in the future.

“Would I like to be a head coach again? Absolutely. If the opportunity presents itself I’m a different person than I was in 2009, you know, when I got that job.”

After leaving Alabama and coming to Miami to spearhead the rebuild of a lifeless offense, one had to assume that Enos had and continues to have bigger aspirations for himself. If he successfully builds up Jarren Williams and turns this offense around, it is almost a guarantee that there is a school that is going to come calling.

He has the pedigree to make something his own once again, but he still has more to prove at Miami before he takes that next step.


In other Hurricanes news, Miami tight end Brevin Jordan did in fact practice Sunday despite appearing to be injured in Saturdays game. Mark Pope and Romeo Finley are still questionable and Manny Diaz says that they will know more about their status on Tuesday.

That’s all from me this a.m.

Happy Tuesday and Go Canes!
