Maryland football quickly filled its two coaching vacancies, hiring Dan Enos as offensive coordinator and Brian Braswell as offensive line coach, the team announced Monday afternoon. The moves come after head coach Mike Locksley parted ways with Scottie Montgomery and John Reagan last week.

Enos arrives in College Park from Cincinnati, where he served as the Bearcats’ running backs coach last season. He previously worked with Locksley as Alabama’s quarterbacks coach in 2018, mentoring Tua Tagovailoa to a record-setting season as the Crimson Tide reached the national championship game.

Now at Maryland, Enos and Locksley will oversee the development of Tagovailoa’s younger brother, Taulia, who showed promise in his first season with the Terps in 2020.

“Dan has a tremendous track record as one of the top quarterback developers in the country,” Locksley said in a statement. “Because of Dan’s familiarity with our system, I expect a smooth transition as we continue to develop the talent on our roster and take the next steps as a program.”

Braswell is joining Enos to complete the offensive coaching staff. He was a volunteer analyst for the Terps’ offensive line during the 2020 season and previously held full-time positions as an assistant in the NFL and XFL.

He will be tasked with growing a youthful group in the trenches, one that made strides in 2020 but still struggled at times to hold up against more imposing front sevens.

“Brian is a very technical offensive line coach that will bring strong knowledge of the position to the room,” Locksley said in a statement. “He’ll be a tremendous asset to our players and a great addition to our coaching staff.”

Additionally, Locksley announced that defensive line coach Brian Williams has been promoted to co-defensive coordinator. He has primarily shined on the recruiting trail, helping land several key defensive commits from his native Florida, including five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis and four-star linebacker Branden Jennings.

As a coach, Williams oversaw a front three that helped Maryland rank second in the Big Ten with 2.8 sacks per game.

“Brian Williams continues to develop into a strong young coach,” Locksley said in a statement. “He adds tremendous value to our program and the sky’s the limit for him as a coach.”
