Turns out Nick Saban isn't done tinkering with his 2018 coaching staff.

Dan Enos, who was announced as a new assistant coach at MI earlier this month, has reportedly left to join Alabama's staff.

If Enos joins Alabama's staff, it will place Arkansas' two most recent offensive coordinators on the staffs of the 2017 national champion and national runner-up. The team formally announced the addition of former Penn State receivers coach Josh Gattis to the same position on the Tide staff earlier Thursday.

Enos was only officially announced to Michigan's staff on January 8 and is already heading back to the SEC. With the news of Enos' departure, one would think that is a signal to expect the offensive coaching staff that guided MI to it's lowest passing TD mark since 1975 to remain in tact (minus Greg Frey, who took a lateral role as OL Coach at Florida State).

Enos has known Saban since 1987, when Enos was a freshman quarterback at Michigan State and Saban was the team's defensive coordinator.

Williams appeared to confirm those reports later Thursday night when he changed his Twitter profile to include an OR football header picture and a photo of the Ducks' chrome helmet, as well as his location and employment both being the University of Oregon.

At Alabama, Enos will inherit two quarterbacks with similar potential - Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa who will battle for the starting spot next season. Both reported Enos would be the Crimson Tide's quarterbacks coach, with Thamel adding Enos' title is expected to include associate head coach.
