2018 Football Season Tickets

With the spring football season now behind the Flames, the Liberty Football program has turned its full attention to the 2018 season, the program's first at the FBS level.

During the next several weeks, LibertyFlames.com will run a series of interviews with coaches, players and school administrators talking about Liberty's FBS transition process.

Aaron Stamn is one of several coaches who have served under head coach Turner Gill with three different programs. Besides his time at Liberty, Stamn also previously worked under Gill at Buffalo (2006-09) and Kansas (2010-11).

Stamn currently serves as Liberty's offensive line coach, the same role he worked in under Gill at Buffalo during the 2009 season. During his six years with the Flames, Stamn served as offensive coordinator from 2012-15, tight ends and fullbacks coach from 2012-16 and offensive line in 2017.

During Stamn's four-year stint as offensive coordinator, Liberty had 23 offensive players selected to the All-Big South teams (13 first team, 10 second team) and 18 players named to VaSID All-State teams (10 first team, eight second team).

Since joining Gill's staff, Stamn has been instrumental in helping Liberty win four Big South titles (2012-14, 2016) and earning the program's first-ever appearance in the NCAA FCS Playoffs in 2014, setting the stage for Liberty's FBS transition process.

Stamn also helped Liberty kicked off its two-year FBS transition process in grand style when the Flames posted a 48-45 win at Baylor on Sept. 2, 2017. The stunning victory was ranked as the seventh biggest upset in college football over the last 25 years in an article on ESPN.com (Sept. 6, 2017).

Rise With Us: The Process

On Feb. 16, 2017, the NCAA approved Liberty's waiver request to begin the two-year FBS reclassification process. Liberty completed its final season as a FCS program in 2017, playing as a member of the Big South Conference.

During the 2018 season, Liberty will compete as a FBS independent program and will not be eligible for postseason competition. At the conclusion of the two-year transition process, Liberty will be a full-fledged FBS program in 2019, which will include the opportunity to compete for bowl game appearances.

The Flames will host their first FBS home game against Old Dominion on Sept. 1, 2018, the first of four FBS teams to visit Williams Stadium in 2018 to meet the FBS reclassification criteria. The 2018 home schedule also features FBS matchups against North Texas (Sept. 22), Troy (Oct. 13) and New Mexico State (Nov. 24).
