Alabama will have a fifth offensive coordinator in four season for 2018

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Friday wasn't just when the University of Alabama said goodbye to a number of players leaving school early, but it turned out to be moving day for numerous coaches as well.

Quarterbacks coach Dan Enos, who was poised to be promoted to offensive coordinator for the 2019 season, left the Crimson Tide for the same position at Miami.

“Dan was my primary target for our offensive coordinator position from the outset and I'm thrilled he's now a Miami Hurricane," Miami coach Manny Diaz said in a release. "Dan is one of the most innovative play-callers in college football and he not only has a remarkable track record of coaching quarterbacks, but also developing players for the NFL at numerous positions.

"His experience as a head coach will also provide invaluable insight to our entire program."

The move might also explain why Jalen Hurts has suddenly started following numerous people surrounding the Hurricanes on Twitter.

Enos is the fourth coach to leave the Crimson Tide since the National Championship Game, all on the offensive side: quarterbacks coach Dan Enos to Miami, offensive coordinator Mike Locksley to Maryland, wide receivers coach Josh Gattis to Michigan, and offensive line coach Brent Key to Georgia Tech.

Running backs coach Joe Pannunzio and tight ends coach Jeff Banks are the lone remaining offensive position coaches.

Nick Saban hired six assistant coaches last year.
