Former Falcons coach Jerry Glanville has applied to be Eastern Michigan’s coach

Jerry Glanville wants to get back into coaching, and he's angling for the job at Eastern Michigan.

It's open after the school fired Ron English, and the 72-year-old Glanville said that he's applied for the job. He last coached at Portland State in 2009.

"I love coaching football," Glanville told USA Today. "The bottom line is coaches coach, preachers preach. They do that until they put them in the box."

In the three years he was at Portland State, Glanville was 9-24. That's only slightly more successful than his NASCAR career. From 1992 to 1999 Glanville made 33 starts in what's now the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series. He never finished on the lead lap in any of those races.

Glanville coached the Houston Oilers from 1986-1989 and the Atlanta Falcons from 1990-1993. He was out of coaching until 2005, when he became Hawaii's defensive coordinator before taking the Portland State job.

Would you like the opportunity to consider yourself a candidate alongside Glanville? Here's your chance. The job is posted online here, and we envision that Glanville filled out the online application just like you can. Did anyone from Eastern Michigan approach Glanville? Or did he find the job posting on a job site? Pressing questions, we know.

Please note that "Work is performed in a typical outdoor and indoor sports setting and in an office setting" and that you must have knowledge of NCAA rules and policies. Good luck.
