YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Eastern Michigan has hired Chris Creighton as football coach.

The school announced the move Wednesday night.

The 44-year-old Creighton led Drake to a 6-5 record this season and was 44-22 in six seasons at the Iowa school. He is 139-46 in 17 seasons as a head coach at Ottawa, Wabash at Drake.

''It is both a huge opportunity and responsibility and I am fired up about it,'' Creightton said. ''My vision is to make playing football at Eastern Michigan one of the most incredible experiences of our players lives. I cannot wait to meet the team and start a new journey with them.''

Creighton replaces Ron English, fired last month after the Eagles opened 1-8 en route to a 2-10 mark. He was 11-46 over five years at the Mid-American Conference program.

Drake quickly replaced Creighton, promoting assistant Rick Fox to head coach. Fox spent the past six seasons as the assistant head coach under Creighton.
