Associate head coach and running back coach Pete Sundheim will be joining Flames head coach Danny Rocco on tonight's Flames Hotline.

Listen to Live Audio of the Flames Hotline Thursday at 7 p.m. 

Two 20-plus year coaching veterans will be featured on tonight's version of the Flames Hotline, as Liberty head coach Danny Rocco will be joined by associate head coach Pete Sundheim on the weekly radio call-in show, which is broadcast live from inside Doc's Diner on Liberty's Campus East.

Each week during the football season, Rocco will be the guest on the Flames Hotline. The one-hour long show begins at 7 p.m. (EST), opening with a segment with one of Rocco's assistant coaches. Hosts Nick Pierce will start this week's program by talking with Sundheim, who currently serves as Liberty's associate head coach and running backs coach. Sundheim has been a part of Liberty's coaching staff for the past 21 seasons.

Liberty has been one of the nation's top rushing FCS programs in recent years, ranking in the Top 30 in team rushing for six out of the last seven seasons. The Flames currently have a pair of former running backs playing in the NFL this season, in four-year NFL veteran Sam Gado and league newcomer Rashad Jennings, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Following the opening segment with Sundheim, the remaining 45 minutes of the Flames Hotline will feature Rocco. Besides calling in on the Flames Hotline toll-free number, Flame fans are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the program by asking questions of Rocco in person inside Doc's Diner. Local fans unable to make it out to Doc's Diner each Tuesday night may also call in at (434) 582-2909 to participate in the weekly show.
