Oxford, OH, United States (4E Sports) – After a 0-5 start, Miami (Ohio) announced that it has dismissed head football coach Don Treadwell and an interim head coach would be named soon.
“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,” Sayler added.
Treadwell compiled an 8-21 record in 29 career games at the helm of the Miami football program since he was hired in 2011. Before joining the Redhawks, he spent four seasons as offensive coordinator at Michigan State.
Aside from Treadwell, Sayler said the school also relieved offensive coordinator John Klacik of his responsibilities.
The RedHawks have an all-time record of 668-414-44, which is tops among teams in the Mid-American Conference. Miami also leads the MAC with 15 career MAC Championships.
“Don is a great man 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,” Sayler said.
