Flames Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze is nearing a return to the team. Freeze is scheduled to meet with the media today for the first time since undergoing back surgery for staph infection, last week. Freeze has been away from the team recovering, but was released from the hospital on Wednesday. Freeze is now set up at the Fairfield Inn near Liberty's campus where he's able to watch live video of each team practice and communicate with his coaching staff.
