Enos to be next CMU Football Coach
CMU Athletics Director Dave Heeke made the decision to hire Enos on Monday night and a formal press conference is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday 3 p.m.
Enos has served as the running backs coach for the Spartans the last two seasons under head coach Mark Dantonio. He will be taking over the 23rd ranked football team in the nation, in Central Michigan University, following former head coach Butch Jones’ decision to leave Central Michigan for Cincinnati.
The Chippewas finished 12-2 this past season, having won the Mid-American Conference title, the GMAC Bowl, and a non-conference game over Enos’ former team in Michigan State.
Enos was able to win the job over fellow finalists Mike Bajakian (CMU Offensive Coordinator) and Curt Mallory (Illinois Defensive Backs Coach).
Enos has spent the past four seasons with Michigan State, having also coached the MSU quarterbacks starting in 2006, under John L. Smith.
Prior to working with the Spartans, he worked at Cincinnati with Dantonio as quarterbacks coach from 2004-05.
Enos has also been quarterbacks coach at Western Michigan, North Dakota State, South Illinois, and Southwest Missouri State.
Prior to coaching, Enos was a four-year letterman for Michigan State as a quarterback from 1987-90. Enos was the starting quarterback for MSU in the 1989 and 1990 seasons. He led the Spartans to a 16-7-1 record and back-to-back bowl wins under then coach George Perles.
Enos graduated from Michigan State in 1991 in business administration and received a master’s degree in sports administration in 2006.
Enos and his wife Jane have two children, Idalia and Alex, and the family currently resides in Mason.
