Updated: December 3, 2013

Oxford, OH ( – Miami-Ohio has hired Notre Dame offensive
coordinator Chuck Martin as its new football coach.

Martin, the former head coach at Division II Grand Valley State, will try to
turn around a program coming off its first winless season in 25 years.

“I look forward to getting back to the excellence Miami stands for and am
excited to hit the ground running,” Martin said in a statement.

Miami fired coach Don Treadwell on Oct. 7 after an 0-5 start and named Mike
Bath interim coach. The RedHawks went 0-12, their first season without a win
since 1988 under Tim Rose. Treadwell was in his third season.

Martin spent the past four seasons at Notre Dame, the last two as offensive
coordinator and quarterbacks coach, helping the Fighting Irish reach the BCS
National Championship game last season.

As head coach at Grand Valley State, he won back-to-back Division II national
championships in 2005-06 and finished runner-up in 2009. He was on the staff
of the GVSU teams that won consecutive titles in 2002-03.
