Report: English to Louisville

ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that Louisville is set to name Ron English as its new defensive coordinator. English currently holds the same position at Michigan, but has been fired by new head coach Rich Rodriguez effective after the Wolverines' bowl game against Florida on New Year's Day.

Schad also reported that former Duke head coach Ted Roof would be joining the staff in some capacity.

If true, the hire of English would seem to be a huge step forward for a U of L defense that finished 84th in the country in total defense this season.

English spent a total of five years in Ann Arbor, the last two as Lloyd Carr's defensive coordinator. He was named National Defensive Coordinator of the Year by Rivals.com in 2006 after Michigan finished the season first in the nation in rush defense, fourth in sacks, seventh in third down defense, 10th in total defense and 15th in scoring defense.

I know this isn't official, so for the moment I'm going to say "woohoo," but I'm not going to capitalize any part of it or use an exclamation point.
