Mike Bath was named interim head coach on Oct. 6, 2013, after starting the 2013 season as the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach for his alma mater. In addition to his role as interim head coach, Bath also will serve as offensive coordinator and continue to coach the quarterbacks.

Bath, 36, a seasoned veteran with Miami University, has served the RedHawks as a player, graduate assistant and a full-time assistant coach over the past 18 years. His association with Miami began in 1996 as a student-athlete.

In 2012, he helped Zac Dysert break nearly every passing record at Miami on his way to earning third-team All-MAC honors. Dysert was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2013 and earned a place on the team’s active roster. Coaching tight ends and wide receivers in 2011 and quarterbacks in 2012, Bath helped guide one of the Mid-American Conference’s most potent passing offenses the past two seasons in his second stint with the RedHawks.

Bath had another pupil make his way to the National Football League in 2013 as wide receiver Andy Cruse—also a third-team All-MAC selection in 2012—signed a free-agent contract with the Houston Texans and remains on their practice roster.

Overall, it is Bath’s sixth season as full-time coach at Miami. He served on Shane Montgomery’s staff as tight ends coach from 2006-08. During that span, Bath helped both Tom Crabtree and Jake O’Connell advance to the NFL. Before being elevated to an assistant coach at Miami, he was a graduate assistant for the RedHawks from 2004-2005.

Bath is no stranger to calling the offense. Prior to returning to Oxford, he served as Ashland University’s offensive coordinator for two seasons from 2009-10.

During his time as an assistant coach with the Red and White, Miami has captured three MAC East Division Championships and made an Independence Bowl appearance. As a player, Bath orchestrated an offense that led Miami to a MAC East Division co-title in 1998, posting a 7-1 league record. That season the RedHawks compiled an impressive 10-1 mark, which included wins over No. 12 North Carolina and Army.

In addition to the upset win over the nationally-ranked Tar Heels as a sophomore, Bath was instrumental in some of the biggest wins in school history during his career, quarterbacking other upsets over Northwestern (1999) and Vanderbilt (2000). During his undergraduate career with the RedHawks he played under two of the all-time great Miami coaches, Randy Walker (1996-98) and Terry Hoeppner (1999-00).

As the starting quarterback of the RedHawks from 1998-00, Bath posted a record of 23-10 under center. He posted then-Miami career records of 6,524 yards passing and 49 TDs. Bath also saw time in the Arena Football League 2 in 2002-03 with the Charleston Swamp Foxes and the Mohegan Wolves.

A double major at Miami, Bath earned bachelor of science degrees in marketing and organizational behavior in 2001. He resides in Oxford with his wife, Tara, and their three children, Colton (6), Savannah (3) and Case (1).
