Dan Enos has had a memorable journey as a coach, to say the least, and one report is indicating he is the leading contender to be Maryland’s next offensive coordinator.
According to Pete Thamel with Yahoo! Sports, the Terrapins are going to part ways with current OC Scottie Montgomery heading into 2021. With Montgomery heading out, Thamel is reporting Enos as the leading candidate to take over as OC for Mike Locksley.

Enos and Locksley do have a previous connection. Enos was the quarterback coach in 2018 at Alabama while Locksley served as the OC for the Crimson Tide.
After that stint at Alabama, Enos wound up in Miami as the OC, but he lasted just one season with the Hurricanes. He was Cincinnati’s RB coach for 2020.
Enos’ journey started as a graduate assistant at Michigan State where he played collegiately as a quarterback. He would return to East Lansing in 2006 and wound up as an assistant on Mark Dantonio’s initial staff with the Spartans.
Michigan fans will also remember Enos and that he was briefly a part of Jim Harbaugh’s staff to start 2018. He was on staff for about six weeks before leaving to take the QB coach role at Alabama.
If he is indeed headed back to the B1G, it will be interesting to see how results pan out at Maryland.
