“I thank Dan Enos for his hard work and effort the past five years in building a strong football program here at Central Michigan University,” said Dave Heeke, Director of Athletics. “We will move quickly and decisively in naming a new coach. This is an extraordinary opportunity for a leader who seeks a team that’s strong on the field and in the classroom. CMU also is an ideal setting for someone who celebrates an engaged and loyal alumni fan base.
“This is a storied program that is committed to success and competing for championships. We’ve built a true championship culture with our football team and throughout CMU Athletics, and we look forward to welcoming our next great coach.”
Reports have Enos head to Arkansas and assuming offensive coordinator duties for the Razorbacks, an SEC program with plenty of reason to be optimistic about the 2015 campaign.
Meanwhile, CMU is now looking for a new head coach with National Letter of Intent day (Feb. 4) less than two weeks away. It is the biggest day of the year for high school student athletes heading to collegiate programs.
Enos compiled a 26-36 record in five years as the Chippewas head coach and guided them to a pair of bowl appearances over the last three seasons. Most recently, CMU fell short in one of the wildest games of the bowl season – a 49-48 defeat against Western Kentucky in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl.
