YPSILANTI, MICH. (AP) - Eastern Michigan athletic director Heather Lyke says fired football coach Ron English used "wholly inappropriate language" while addressing the team.

EMU announced English’s dismissal Friday. On Saturday, the school released a statement from Lyke saying she’d received a tape of English addressing the team. She called his statements "absolutely unacceptable."

Lyke says the tape was only one of "a lot of factors" that led to her decision to change coaches.

The Eagles were 1-8 when English was fired. English went 11-46 at the Mid-American Conference school.
