OXFORD, Ohio - Miami University has named Mike Bath as interim coach after six seasons as RedHawks assistant.
Bath, a former RedHawks quarterback, has coached quarterbacks and wide receivers for the past three seasons. Bath coached tight ends from 2006 to 2008.
The announcement follows the firing of coach Don Treadwell on Sunday, a day after the team fell to 0-5 with a 21-9 loss at home to Central Michigan. Offensive coordinator John Klacik also was 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 lost to Marshall 52-14, to Kentucky 41-7, to Cincinnati 14-0 and to Illinois 50-14.
Miami plays at Massachusetts on Saturday.
