Chris Creighton was named as the 37th Head Football Coach at Eastern Michigan University in December 2013. Creighton earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kenyon College in 1991 and a Master’s degree from Concordia (Ill.) University in 1993. He was inducted into the Kenyon College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008.

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 school history (.667) after also posting 63 wins as the head coach at Wabash College and 32 at Ottawa University.

In his six seasons at Drake, Creighton boasted a 30-5 home record and a 21-2 home conference record, going undefeated against five conference opponents. Drake had an 11-game home win streak during Creighton’s tenure as well as winning 16-straight home conference games. A league-leading 18 Bulldogs received All-PFL honors and a PFL-best 9 Drake student-athletes were named Academic All-PFL. In addition, a then-school record 61 Bulldogs were named to the PFL Academic Honor Roll for achieving a grade-point average of 3.0 or above.

Prior to his time at Drake, Creighton served as head coach at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana from 2001-07 where he constructed a 63-15 record (.808) with his teams winning four North Coast Athletic Conference championships (’02, ’05, ’06, ’07) and competed in three NCAA Division III playoffs. As offensive coordinator at Wabash, Creighton’s teams averaged 35 points per game. During his final three years at Wabash, Creighton led his team to three straight league championships.

Creighton coached 83 All Conference players, including seven who earned conference player of the year honors, along with 13 All-Americans. Creighton was named North Coast Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2002, ’05 and ’07, as well as Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 1997.

Chris and his wife, Heather, have two daughters, Hallie and Kate, and a son, Luke.
