Parrish was named head coach when Hoke left for San Diego State after the 2008 season. Ball State went 6-19 in his two year stint as head coach and he was fired following the 2010 season. He was also head coach at Marshall and Kansas State and once held the inglorious distinction of coaching 30 straight games without a victory.
Parrish was quarterbacks coach at Michigan from 1996-99, winning a national championship with the Wolverines in 1997. He was Michigan's offensive coordinator from 2000-01 and was the quarterbacks coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl winning team in 2003.
Parrish replaces Ken Karcher. Last season Eastern ranked 12th out of 13 MAC teams in total offense, gaining 335 yards per game as the Eagles went 2-10 on the season.
EMU also ranked 12th in passing offense, with 171 yards per game.
