MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -Michigan State running backs coach Dan Enos has been picked as the new head coach at Central Michigan.

The university announced the choice Tuesday.

The 41-year-old Enos has been the running backs coach at Michigan State during the past three seasons after coaching the quarterbacks in 2006. He played quarterback at Michigan State from 1987-1990.

Enos succeeds former Chippewas head coach Butch Jones, who was hired in December as Cincinnati's new coach. Jones replaced Brian Kelly, who came from Central Michigan three years ago and left for Notre Dame.

Central Michigan (12-2) finished the season ranked No. 23 after defeating Troy 44-41 in the GMAC Bowl.
