And we have a new job opening on the market.

On Friday Eastern Michigan announced that coach Ron English had been "relieved of his responsibilities immediately."

"At this time, I have decided that a change in the leadership of our football team is necessary," said Eastern Michigan athletic director Heather Lyke in a release. "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 in selecting the new leader of our program."

English was in the midst of his fifth season at Eastern Michigan, with the Eagles currently 1-8 in the 2013 season. English's overall record at the school was 11-46, including a mark of 7-30 in conference play.

Eastern Michigan also announced that assistant Stan Parrish would serve as interim coach, and that the school will immediately begin a "national search for a new head coach."
