Miami faces Dan Enos’ former team on Saturday

NCAA Football: Florida at Miami Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With a 63-0 victory over Bethune-Cookman this past Saturday, the Hurricanes were able to notch the first win in the Manny Diaz era. This week, Miami will try to even their record at 2-2 as the Central Michigan Chippewas come to Hard Rock Stadium.

Saturday will mean an extra bit for offensive coordinator Dan Enos, who was the head coach at Central Michigan from 2010 until 2014, posting a 26-36 record during his time there.

When asked about facing his former team by the media on Monday, Enos had some things to say, describing that CMU did not show him the love that he showed the program for five years.

Following the 2014 season, Enos left to become the OC with the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Enos has been of the best hires that Diaz has made since his tenure as head coach began at Miami. Dan’s biggest accomplishment thus far has been turning Jarren Williams into a quarterback who Canes fans can be confident in and excited about. Through three games, Williams has thrown for 777 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions, while also completing 73% of his passes. At a program where the quarterback position has been without a star since Ken Dorsey left, the rise of Williams has been met with tremendous excitement.

So while he may not publicly say it, you can bet Enos has a little extra motivation for this game, and you can expect plenty of points from the Hurricanes offense against the Chippewas.
