Former Michigan State player and assistant coach Dan Enos has been given an contract extension by Central Michigan
After leading the Chippewas to a bowl game this past season, Enos received a four-year contract extension today from CMU athletic director Dave Heeke.
“I am very excited about the next chapter of CMU football,” Enos said in a released statement from the school. “Leading this team and maintaining the great traditions and legacy of Chippewa football is a great responsibility and privilege. I’m honored to have the opportunity to work with such an excellent group of young men and to strive together for continued success in the classroom and on the football field.”
The Chippewas finished 7-6 last fall. CMU won five of its last six games, including a victory over Western Kentucky in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
Enos left MSU after the 2009 season to take over the CMU program. He went 3-9 in each of his first two seasons before leading Central to a winning record in 2012.
Enos’ first two seasons at CMU have mirrored what former MSU offensive coordinator Don Treadwell has done in his first two seasons at Miami (Ohio) since leaving after the 2010 season. Treadwell has led the RedHawks to 4-8 records in his first two years in charge.
Looking at another former MSU assistant that’s coaching in the MAC in a different sport, Mark Montgomery has led Northern Illinois’ men’s basketball team to a 4-13 mark this season and 2-3 record in conference play heading into Saturday’s game at Eastern Michigan. This is Montgomery’s second season leading the Huskies. NIU went 5-26 and 3-13 in the MAC in his debut season in DeKalb, Ill.
