OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Michigan State assistant Don Treadwell has been hired as the head coach at Miami, Ohio, replacing Michael Haywood.
Treadwell has been Michigan State’s offensive coordinator and receivers coach for the last four years. He was chosen on Friday to take over for Haywood, who left for Pittsburgh after two seasons in Oxford.
Treadwell was a team captain and four-year starter Miami from 1978-81. He becomes the school’s 34th head coach.
Miami plays in the GoDaddy.com Bowl on Jan. 6 against Middle Tennessee State. Treadwell plans to attend the game.
