EMU Head Football Coach, Chris Creighton:

Chris Creighton was named as the 37th Head Football Coach at Eastern Michigan University on Dec. 11, 2013.  

The 45-year-old Creighton built Drake University into a consistent power in the Pioneer Football League, sharing the conference crown during the 2011 and 2012 campaigns. During his 17-year head coaching career, he has accumulated eight conference titles and an all-time record of 139-46 (.764 winning percentage). He departed Drake with the highest winning percentage in that school’s  history (.667) after also posting 63 wins as the head coach at Wabash College and 32 at Ottawa University.  

“It is with great pride that we introduce Chris Creighton as our new head football coach,” said EMU Vice President/Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Heather Lyke. “In Chris, Eastern Michigan will find an extraordinary leader who will be a great ambassador for our University.  During the search process, Chris’ focus on positively impacting the lives of our student-athletes and building a championship program was most impressive. As a proven winner and head coach, Chris’ experience with creating and sustaining success will inspire our student-athletes to elevate our football program to a championship level.”
