Hugh Freeze Press Conference

Following Hugh Freeze's introductory press conference on Dec. 7, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell addressed the media about the head coaching hiring process.

Freeze was introduced to Flames Nation as Liberty's ninth head football coach before a packed Club Pavilion level of the Carter Tower at Williams Stadium.

Freeze brings over 25 years of continued coaching success to Liberty, including head coaching experience that has led to conference titles, nationally ranked recruiting classes and bowl appearances at multiple stops during his highly decorated career.

Prior to being named Liberty's ninth head football coach, Freeze's collegiate head coaching stops have included Lambuth University (2008-09), Arkansas State (2011) and Ole Miss (2012-16) where he posted a combined 69-32 mark in eight seasons.

The native of Oxford, Miss., returned to his hometown school and lead it back to championship form during his five seasons as head coach at Ole Miss.

Freeze guided Ole Miss to bowl games each of his first four years with the Rebels, becoming the first coach in school history to accomplish the feat. The wins included victories in the BBVA Compass, Music City and Sugar Bowl games.
