Head football coach Ron English was fired by Eastern Michigan on Friday afternoon after a poor 1-8 start to the season.

Now we’re starting to learn more about the reason for the sudden exit.

Since taking over at Eastern Michigan in 2009, English led Eagles to an 11-46 record. Six of those 11 wins came in 2011.
