On Friday afternoon, it was reported that the Miami Hurricanes landed a new offensive coordinator. Manny Diaz and company are celebrating the arrival of former Alabama quarterbacks coach Dan Enos, who will serve as the Hurricanes’ offensive coordinator moving forward.
After the coaching change was announced, college football analysts around the country suggested there was a new favorite to land the services of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Enos, who was instrumental in the development of Jalen Hurts this season at Alabama, could look to bring the star transfer quarterback with him.
College football insider Bruce Feldman said the Enos hire “adds to the likelihood” that Hurts will transfer to Miami.
Miami would really be an ideal destination for Jalen Hurts. Huge need there and now the right OC is in place. https://t.co/lKqxTkekCC

Miami brings back Malik Rosier and N’Kosi Perry, who traded time as the starting quarterback this season. However, Hurts offers a better alternative and knows the system Enos wants to run which is a huge advantage for the former Alabama quarterback.
