Jerry Glanville wants the Eastern Michigan job
Former NFL coach Jerry Glanville says he has applied for the job at Eastern Michigan.
Jerry Glanville wants to get back into coaching, and he's already applied for a job.
"I love the Mid-American Conference," Glanville told the paper. "The Big Ten is going to take the kid you really want. But it's what you do after you have them on your campus.
"I don't see why Eastern Michigan should not be as good as Bowling Green and Toledo and the rest of them in that conference. But they haven't been."
While Glanville is mostly known for his time in the NFL, where he spent eight seasons as head coach of the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons, his most recent work came in college. He was the defensive coordinator at Hawaii for two seasons under June Jones before taking over the Portland State program. In his three seasons at Portland State, Glanville went 9-24.
Of course, there's a huge difference between wanting the Eastern Michigan job and getting the Eastern Michigan job. Whether he was successful at Portland State or not, it's hard to imagine that Eastern Michigan will be looking to hire a 72-year-old coach.
