This comes after a 31-25 loss to Ball State on Tuesday night, which dropped the Zips' record to 1-4 in MAC play and 2-7 overall.

Arth had a 3-24 record in three seasons at Akron. Per his contract, Arth's buyout is worth $637,000.

Inside linebackers coach Oscar Rodriguez Jr. will take on the role of interim head coach through the end of the season.
