Miami (Ohio) hires Notre Dame OC Chuck Martin as head coach
Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chuck Martin has accepted the job as head coach at struggling Miami (Ohio).
Martin succeeds Don Treadwell, who was fired after the RedHawks lost their first five games. Treadwell, a Miami graduate, went 8-21 at his alma mater.
The RedHawks lost to Ball State 55-14 last Friday, finishing the season 0-12 under offensive coordinator Mike Bath, the interim coach. It was the first time since 1988 that they failed to win a game and only the fourth time since 1900.
Miami is known as the ''cradle of coaches,'' but hasn't been able to find one to pull it out of a recent slide. The RedHawks have won two or fewer games four times since 2006.
