Enos it is

After a weekend of interviews, it appears Central Michigan University has settled on a new head coach: Dan Enos.

A source close to the situation told The Morning Sun's Drew Ellis that CMU AD Dave Heeke picked Enos, currently the running backs coach at Michigan State, over Illinois DBs coach Curt Mallory and current CMU offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian, and will formally announce the hiring at a news conference today.

Check out Ellis' blog here.

A former Spartan quarterback (1987-90), Enos led the Spartans to back-to-back bowl victories (1989 Aloha, 1990 John Hancock), and a share of the 1990 Big Ten title — Michigan State's last championship. As a coach, the ace recruiter has helped MSU win the in-state recruiting battle with U-M the last few years.

Like the last three U-M coaches — Mike DeBord, Brian Kelly and the recently-departed Butch Jones — Enos' specialty is offense, but he's been more associated with a pro-style offense than the spread that CMU has used to win three of the last four Mid-American Conference titles.
