OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- Miami of Ohio fired coach Don Treadwell on Sunday, a day after the RedHawks fell to 0-5 with a 21-9 loss at home to Central Michigan.
The school didn't immediately appoint an interim coach. Offensive coordinator John Klacik was also 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 have lost to Marshall 52-14, to Kentucky 41-7, to Cincinnati 14-0 and to Illinois 50-14. The RedHawks play at Massachusetts next Saturday.
