Mike Haywood came to Miami (Ohio) and quickly turned the program around, leading the Redhawks to a MAC title this season.  Haywood then parlayed that success into a head coaching gig at Pitt, leaving Miami looking for a new head coach.

A new head coach it seems that its found.

The school announced on Friday through a press release that it had hired Michigan State offensive coordinator Don Treadwell to be its next head coach.  Treadwell has been serving under Mark Dantonio in East Lansing since 2007, and also took over the program for a few weeks earlier this season after Dantonio suffered a heart attack in September.

Of course, it's not just his coaching experience that likely helped Treadwell land the job.  Treadwell played football at Miami as a wide receiver from 1978-81, and also served as the school's wide receivers and running backs coach for two years under the late Randy Walker in 1992 and 1993.

I think overall it's gonna be a little bit of tedious long-standing thread, even so terribly paid for to achieve my own time.
