Eastern Michigan football coach Ron English still dealing with single mom comments
Ron English would rather just talk football with the reporters who have followed up with him about his attention-grabbing comments about single moms.
The Eastern Michigan football coach has explained his stance -- including this Letter to the Editor at AnnArbor.com -- but he's still getting questions, including an interview Wednesday with the Associated Press.
In a story published today, he says he's kind of glad people want to talk to him at all.
"I'm not sure the attention is bad because no one in this program committed a catastrophic crime," he said. "I'm sure there's a faction of people on campus who think I did a lot of damage to Eastern Michigan, but I don't think people who know me believe I've done that."
In the same story, EMU athletic director Derrick Gragg says the positive thing to come out of the situation is "people are getting a chance to see who (English) really is, how he was raised and what he stands for as he leads our football program at Eastern Michigan."
