OBB: The Wake Up. (1/19)

Wake up sunshine. This is your Thursday morning wake up call from your fun loving OBB. A former Hurricanes OC finds a familiar home and the baseball team showed off their facilities. #LETSGO! Wake up!

A familiar name is set to become the new offensive coordinator at Arkansas. Dan Enos will look to replace Kendall Briles as the Razorback’s new play caller. Briles is now employed by TCU working in the same capacity. Enos joined the University of Miami in January 2019 and served as OC and quarterbacks coach.

This will be Enos’s second stint as Arkansas OC and the former Michigan State QB is no stranger to SEC country. Enos was fired after one season with the Hurricanes following a 6-7 season. In his last game with Miami, the Hurricanes were shut out by Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl.

Enos was wildly inefficient during his Hurricane tenure. The Canes ranked 129th out of 130 schools in third-down percentage. Miami ranked 89th in scoring, 99th in total offense, 122nd in rushing and 122nd in red zone offense.

The Hurricanes announced the decision back then with a one-sentence declaration. “The University of Miami football program announced Friday that Dan Enos has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.”

“Home run hire.”

“He’s going back!”

We believe it is only a matter of time before the Miami Hurricanes have a similar declaration with Josh Gattis. This would be the second former Alabama assistant calling plays who is a Miami one and done. There has been speculation that Gattis is searching for other job opportunities.

The OBB can confirm that he hasn’t been around the program and players haven’t seen him in over a week. This has made it a particular challenge when hosting wide receiver transfer portal candidates. When asked who the WR coach will be in 2023, the answer has been, “We don’t know.”

The delay has perturbed many Hurricane fans who feel the decision should have been made already. We firmly believe there are outside mitigating factors that the University is sifting through and tact and timing are paramount.

“Nothing official but Gattis is going to be the new WR coach at Penn State.”

“Don’t give me another reason to root against PSU.”

The Hurricanes hosted ESPN affiliated Dan Sarmiento and the Enjoy the Show podcast brand on a tour of the new facilities. The 6800-square foot indoor facility sits along the right-field line at Mark Light. The facility has been an appeal to recruits and features state-of-the art technology that helps coaches evaluate players.

The Hurricanes are less than two months away before baseball is back at the Light. Currently the Hurricanes hold a preseason rank of #8 with College Baseball, #9 with Perfect Game and #22 with D1 Baseball.
