An offseason of retooling has apparently led Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh to tapping into a Michigan State connection.

According to Bruce Feldman, the Wolverines have hired ex-Michigan State coach/player and most recently Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos to a role that hasn’t yet been revealed.

The 49-year-old Enos who quarterbacked the Spartans in the late 80’s and early 90’s, was the Michigan State running backs coach from 2006 to 2009 and served five seasons as the head coach of Central Michigan has been known as a highly touted recruiter and talent developer across the college football landscape. Yet his hiring provides some intrigue in Ann Arbor when you consider the factors currently surrounding the team.

Yes, the team absolutely sucked on offense ranking eighth in scoring within the Big Ten (25.2 points per game) and ninth in total offense (348.9 yards per game). But currently Tim Drevno is still the offensive coordinator while Pep Hamilton is still the passing game coordinator with the only spot on the offensive coaching staff open being tackles and tight ends coach recently vacated by Greg Frey as he’ll likely accept a job at Florida State. With all that in mind it seems like Enos would be underutilized in Frey’s old role which may lead some to believe that either Drevno or Hamilton could be on their way out.
