During a career started up the road in Oxford, Ohio as a player for Miami University and one that's crossed the country from east coast to west coast, Coach Don Treadwell has seen great players and winning football. This success lead to Coach Dantonio wasting little time in making the call offering the Bearcats offensive coordinator job to the former RedHawks receiver.
During his career Coach Treadwell used his skills as a former college receiver to help develop players like Charles Rogers (Michigan State) and helped programs win championships like Youngstown State. While this isn't his first stop on the campus of Clifton, the road back to Southwest Ohio saw stops at Stanford, Boston College, North Carolina State and Michigan State before heading down I-75 to develop the Bearcats balanced attack during the 2004 season.
But while the 2004 version of the Bearcats offense saw veteran players like Hannibal Thomas, Gino Guidugli and Richard Hall provide balance in rushing (2,201 yards) and passing (2,666 yards) the coach knows 2005 will be a test for his young group of receivers and new quarterback Dustin Grutza.
Bearcat Insider spoke with Coach Treadwell this week about his receiving core and what lies ahead for the Bearcats offense when the team takes the field against Eastern Michigan.
