It's one thing to leave a program like Alabama in the dust. It's another when you use their program as a stepping stone.
It's something entirely different when you get up and leave as if you were never even there. Former Crimson Tide quarterbacks coach Dan Enos didn't just pass up on Alabama to become the next offensive coordinator at Miami. He packed up his things and left without telling anyone.
According to a report, following the team's loss to Clemson in the National title, Nick Saban was looking for Dan Enos and found his office already cleared out.

Not a note? Not a text? Not a notice of any kind?
You know how you aren't supposed to burn bridges when you leave an old job? Well, Enos never got that memo and lit that bad boy up with a flamethrower before he headed to South Beach.
Saban was expected to promote from within and name Enos Alabama's offensive coordinator to fill the hole left behind by Mike Locksley, who became the head coach of Maryland. He must've expected Enos to accept the job since he repeatedly asked "Where's Danny?" during this meeting until he added an expletive into his question.

Can you imagine doing that to the most powerful coach in college football just to take the same exact position with another team?
Saban ended up getting his guy as he recruited Steve Sarkisian back to the Tide, but this move by Enos is something he, or the rest of Alabama, won't soon forget.
