Arkansas parts way with offensive coordinator Dan Enos

Arkansas is making a change at offensive coordinator.

The Razorbacks have fired offensive coordinator Dan Enos, sources tell On3. The move comes after the team’s 7-3 loss to Mississippi State on Saturday.

Wide receivers coach Kenny Guiton will step in as interim offensive coordinator, per sources.

Arkansas, which fell to 2-6 with the loss to the Bulldogs, ranks last in the SEC in scoring offense with an average of 26.5 points per game. During the loss to Mississippi State, the Razorbacks finished with just 200 yards of total offense and 12 first downs.

“It’s disappointing because I’m the head coach at Arkansas and this state deserves better, and that’s the biggest disappointment,” Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman said after the game. “Because we’ve got kids in there playing their hearts out. We just got to figure out a way to score some points.”

Enos was in his second stint with the Razorbacks after previously serving as the team’s OC from 2015-17. He’d been hired this past offseason after two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Maryland . He was the replacement for Kendal Briles, who helped Arkansas rank sixth in the SEC in scoring each of the last two seasons, including with an average of 32.5 points per game last year.

Under Enos, the Razorbacks posted 22 points or fewer each of their last four games.

Before Arkansas and Maryland, Enos was the running backs coach at Cincinnati (2020), the offensive coordinator at Miami (2019) and the quarterbacks coach at Alabama (2018).

Prior to his first stint with the Razorbacks, Enos was the head coach at Central Michigan from 2010 to ’14. As the head coach at Central Michigan, he compiled a 26-36 overall record, including a 7-6 mark in 2014 prior to leave for the offensive coordinator job at Arkansas.

Pittman had said of Enos’ hiring during the offseason, “I hired Dan Enos because I thought he was the best play-caller I’ve ever worked with, and I felt like that’s what we need.” Just a few months later though, Pittman has now decided to part ways.
