Former CMU head coach Dan Enos joins Michigan coaching staff


Head Coach Dan Enos speaks to players on the sideline during the Chippewas

Over his five-year career with Central Michigan, Dan Enos coached the football team to a 26-35 record, 18-22 Mid-American Conference record and a win in the 2012 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. 

He also played football as a Michigan State Spartan. 

Now, Enos is joining Michigan’s staff, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports

He is expected to coach the wide receivers, and could be named co-offensive coordinator depending on what other staff changes are made in Ann Arbor. 

In Ann Arbor, the 49-year-old will join head coach Jim Harbaugh, tackles and tight ends coach Greg Frey, defensive line coach Greg Mattison, defensive backs coach Brian Smith, defensive coordinator Don Brown, passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton, running backs coach Jay Harbaugh, linebackers coach Chris Partridge and secondary coach Michael Zordich. 

Enos was introduced as the head coach at CMU on Jan. 12, 2010. He struggled in his first two years, posting back-to-back 3-9 seasons. 

The following year, Enos led the Chippewas to an upset win on the road over Iowa and a trip to the 2012 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, which the team defeated Western Kentucky.

After a loss in the 2014 Bahamas Bowl, Enos resigned as the head coach at CMU to take the position as the offensive coordinator at Arkansas. 

The Dearborn, Michigan native played four years of quarterback at Michigan State, helping his team to win the 1989 Aloha Bowl and 1990 John Hancock Bowl. He returned to his alma mater to coach quarterbacks and running backs from 2006-2009. 

Enos, throughout the entirety of his coaching career, has made stops at Michigan State, Lakeland, Southern Illinois, Missouri State, Western Michigan, North Dakota State, Cincinnati, Central Michigan and Arkansas. His time at CMU was his only time as a head coach.
