For the second straight week we've had a head coach lose his job following a loss. This time it's Miami (Ohio) coach Don Treadwell who was let go after yesterday's 21-9 loss to Central Michigan dropped the Redhawks to 0-5 on the year.

“I have decided to make a change in our football leadership now in hopes of seeing improved performance for the rest of the season,” said athletic director David Sayler. “Miami University takes the interest of our student-athletes seriously and this decision is the result of the past nine months since I've been on the job.

“Don is a great man, nobody can disagree with that, but I felt a change was needed immediately in the direction of the program. That direction involves making our program relevant again and restoring pride that should accompany being the all-time winningest program in the MAC.”

Treadwell came to Miami in 2011 after spending the previous four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Michigan State. Including the 0-5 start to this season the Redhawks went 8-21 under Treadwell.

Treadwell wasn't the only coach to be let go, either, as offensive coordinator John Klacik was fired as well.

The school named Mike Bath as interim head coach. Bath has been with the Redhawks for the last decade as either a player or coach, spending the last three seasons as the team's quarterbacks/wide receivers coach.
