The Miami Hurricanes will be in the market for an offensive coordinator in 2020.
As the Miami Hurricanes take on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in the Independence bowl, news has come forth that Miami may have a new offensive coordinator come next season. According to a tweet from Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, offensive coordinator Dan Enos will part ways with the team following the game.
The offensive numbers hadn’t exactly been spectacular for Miami in the regular season. The Hurricanes struggled moving the ball at times. Miami ranked 41st in the country in passing yards with 257.2 per game. They rushing attack ranked 120th in the country with 121.8 rushing yards per contest. They scored 27.8 points per game offensively. For comparisons sake, the defense allowed 20.8 points per contest.
To say that the offense hasn’t looked great over the past couple of weeks would be an understatement. At the time of publishing, Miami was scoreless in the Independence Bowl , trailing the Bulldogs by a 7-0 margin. The departure of Enos may give the Hurricanes an opportunity to find a fresh voice offensively. It will be intriguing to see who the new offensive coordinator will be in 2020.
Dan Enos had success prior to Miami Hurricanes
This was Enos’ first season with the Hurricanes, as he joined Manny Diaz’s staff following the 2018 campaign. Prior to this, he served as the quarterbacks coach for Alabama. While there, he coached Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa was extremely successful in 2018, throwing for 3,966 yards, 43 touchdowns, and only six interceptions. Starting all 15 games, he had a completion percentage of 69%.
Unfortunately, that success could never seem to translate this season. There was a ton of inconsistency and many peaks and valleys throughout the course of the season. A fresh voice may be able to help the Miami Hurricanes’ offense find an identity and give them a better chance to compete in what is a crowded Atlantic Coast Conference.
