Rotting under exterior door frame


I went to replace my exterior metal door which had rusted into oblivian.
When I removed the old frame, the entire underneath was all a mess of rotted wood. While I'm reluctant to put another piece of wood there (perhaps treated) does it make any sense to concrete under it or might that be a bad idea?

Rotting under exterior door frame


what is under the rotted wood? ground? foundation? cement in contact with the ground will wick moisture and rot any wood it touches. if you post pics it helps a lot here i've found. =o)
