Eastern Michigan Fires Ron English

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

A day before the Eagles take on the Western Michigan Broncos, Ron English has been relieved of all further coaching responsibilities.

With three games remaining, Ron English has been fired, and has been relieved of all coaching responsibilities.

Leading the Eagles to a 1-8 season this year, English's overall record was 11-46 (7-30 Mid-American Conference), including a loss to FCS school Illinois State last year.

Offensive coordinator Stan Parrish will take over the head coaching duties, but I have not heard anything about the vacant defensive coordinator role.

In an official statement by Eastern Michigan University, athletic director Heather Lyke said:

"At this time, I have decided that a change int he leadership of our football team is necessary. Eastern Michigan University's commitment to our student-athletes remains of the utmost importance as we move forward with the rest of this season and is selecting the new leader of our program."

The Eagles play tomorrow at 1pm against in-state rival Western Michigan University (1-8, 1-4 MAC).
