Ron English is an American football coach and former player. He was terminated as the head coach of the Eastern Michigan Eagles football team on November 8, 2013, having previously replaced Jeff Genyk before the 2009 season.

From 1987 to 1990, English attended and played college football at the University of California, Berkeley. He graduated in 1990 with a degree in communications. In 1995, he received his master's degree in education administration from Arizona State University.

English was hired as head coach at Eastern Michigan in December 2008. At the time of his hiring by Eastern Michigan, he was one of six African American head coaches at Football Bowl Subdivision teams; the others were Turner Gill, Kevin Sumlin, Mike Locksley, Randy Shannon, and Mike Haywood.

Eastern Michigan compiled a 0–12 record in 2009. An article on ranked the Eagles the second-worst team in NCAA FBS football.

The Eagles posted a 2–10 record in 2010, English's second season as head coach, losing all four non-conference games and stretching their losing streak to 18 games before winning an overtime game at Ball State and another game at Buffalo in the latter part of the season.

2011 saw the Eagles achieve their best season in 17 years. They finished the season 6–6, 4–4 in MAC play to finish in a tie for fourth place in the West Division. Despite being 6–6, the Eagles were not bowl eligible because two of their wins came against FCS teams. The 6 wins were the most wins the school had since 1995 when they also had 6 wins. Following the season, English was named the Mid American Conference Coach of the Year. Following the success of the 2011 season, media outlets speculated that English could be a candidate for head coaching openings at BCS schools. Based on his west coast recruiting background and Big Ten coaching experience, the schools most often mentioned were Illinois, Arizona State and Washington State.

English returned to the Eagles as head coach for the 2012 season. Eastern Michigan posted a 2–10 record in 2012, with their wins coming against Army and Western Michigan. EMU faced a difficult schedule, with 7 losses to teams that participated in a post season bowl game. Additionally, the Eagles lost to #14 ranked Illinois State by a score of 31–14 in the second week of the season.

English was abruptly fired on November 8, 2013—less than 24 hours before the Eagles' game against Western Michigan. Later that day, The Detroit News revealed that English had been fired after school officials obtained a tape of a tirade English delivered to his team during an October team meeting. The speech was laden with expletives, and included at least one homophobic slur. On November 9, athletic director Heather Lyke confirmed the existence of the tape and condemned it as "wholly inappropriate" and "absolutely unacceptable." English subsequently apologized, admitting that he had "lost my poise," but hoped to be able to coach again.
