Central Michigan has been a coaching hotbed in recent years. First there was Brian Kelly, who left for Cincinnati and later Notre Dame. He was followed by Butch Jones, who also left for Cincinnati (to replace Kelly) and is now at Tennessee. Jeff Quinn actually coached the team for one game — a victory in the Motor City Bowl — and is now the coach at Buffalo.
Dan Enos arrived in 2010 and won a combined six games in two seasons. He was on the hotseat entering last season and it didn't look good when the Chippewas started 2-5. But the team won five of its last six, including a victory over Western Kentucky in the Little Caesars Bowl. The strong finish bought Enos time, but he'll need to keep the momentum going.
