OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Miami of Ohio has named Mike Bath as interim coach after six seasons as RedHawks assistant.

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.

Bath is a former RedHawks quarterback. He coached tight ends from 2006 to 2008 and has coached quarterbacks and wide receivers for the past three seasons.

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.
