Miami (Ohio) fires Treadwell after 0-5 start

Treadwell

OXFORD, Ohio — Miami (Ohio) fired coach Don Treadwell on Sunday, a day after the RedHawks fell to 0-5 with a 21-9 loss at home to Central Michigan.

Mike Bath will serve as interim head football coach for the remainder of the 2013 season. Bath has been a player, graduate assistant and assistant coach for the RedHawks the past decade. Bath spent the past three seasons as the quarterback/wide receiver coach for the RedHawks. In 2012, he helped Zac Dysert break nearly every passing record at Miami on his way to a spot on the All-MAC Third-Team. Dysert would go on to be drafted by the Denver Broncos.

Offensive coordinator John Klacik was also fired.

Treadwell went 8-21 at his alma mater. He decided to go to a run-based offense this season, and it didn't work out at all, setting up repeated blowouts.

The RedHawks have lost to Marshall 52-14, to Kentucky 41-7, to Cincinnati 14-0 and to Illinois 50-14. The RedHawks play at Massachusetts next Saturday.
