A former Alabama assistant coach took to Twitter on Thursday night to address a report that he left the university without telling head coach Nick Saban.

According to a report from Bruce Feldman of the Athletic, Dan Enos left Alabama to assume the offensive coordinator position at Miami, but did not tell Saban about his plans. That left Saban asking "Where the f*&# is Dan" at a team meeting following Enos' departure.

The report suggested Enos "ghosted" Saban and didn't tell him about his decision to join Manny Diaz's coaching staff at Miami.

Enos claims that's not true. According to his response on Twitter, Enos told Alabama about his plans, but he does not mention whether or not he personally addressed the matter with coach Saban.

"I would never leave an employer without telling them I was doing so. No ghosting here. Nothing but respect for CNS and Alabama. Bottom line, business is business and it was time for me to exit. Wish all the best to RTR, CNS and the program," Enos said in a statement.

The move by Enos took many by surprise as he was the likely choice to take over as Alabama's offensive coordinator after Mike Locksley left to take over the Maryland program.

It's too bad Alabama and Miami don't play each other in 2019, that would be a fun game.
