Eastern Michigan football coach Ron English tries skydiving

By Staff

Eastern Michigan football coach Ron English went skydiving Wednesday with the U.S. Army Golden Knights, reports.

English, who had never tried skydiving before, did a tandem jump from 13,500 feet.

"It was a thrilling rush," English told ESPN. "The feeling of the air, it was just awesome."

It's not like English had to prove his courage to anyone. Anyone who takes the EMU job has plenty of that. I wonder if he'll work it into his motivational speeches to players?
