YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -Eastern Michigan has introduced Ron English as football coach, making him the fifth black head coach in major college football.
The 40-year-old English replaces Jeff Genyk, who was fired last month after going 16-42 in five seasons.
English was Louisville's defensive coordinator this season after spending five years at Michigan on Lloyd Carr's staff. His final two seasons in Ann Arbor were as the team's defensive coordinator.
