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.

After going 1-5-1 from mid-October the second week of November, the Pioneers are 5-0-1 in their last six games.
Austin Czarnik needed four points to become the 46th player in Miami history to notch 100 career points.
Miami entered the third period of its series opener with a three-goal lead against a team that had scored 10 goals in the final stanza all season.
This is an opportunity for Miami to right the ship with just four games left until Christmas break.
Just 14 games in, it already seems like it has been a long season.
Like Friday, No. 8 Miami scored the first goal on Saturday, but again the RedHawks lost.
This can’t be how Miami envisioned the start to its four-game road trip.
These former CCHA foes have not met since 2009-10, and Miami holds a 17-7-3 all-time series lead.
