RJ Fleming has been named wide receivers coach at Eastern Michigan, the school announced last week. Fleming spent the past two seasons at Liberty, working with the wide receivers in an offensive quality control role. He joined Liberty’s staff under head coach Hugh Freeze.
“Really happy for RJ Fleming,” Freeze said. “He deserved his own room. He’s a rising star. RJ will be telling the (EMU) staff about the new things that we’re doing that I think are very cutting edge that I really hadn’t shared with a lot of people.”
In Fleming’s absence, Freeze has promoted Logan Bradley from a graduate assistant position to offensive quality control. Bradley has been working with the Flames’ tight ends for the past two seasons, also joining the staff under Freeze. Previously, Bradley was a student assistant coach at Ole Miss from 2014-18, working with wide receivers Laquon Treadwell, Quincy Adeboyejo, D.K. Metcalf, and others.
“(Losing Fleming), that gives me room to elevate Logan Bradley, who is getting married,” said Freeze. “I promised I would take care of him. I told his grandmomma that when I got him. Now, he gets his first paycheck and insurance, and he’s getting married in May.”
Former Liberty wide receiver Michael Chorowicz takes over in Bradley’s vacated grad assistant position. The Kohler, Wisconsin native was a walk-on wide receiver for the Flames in 2017.
“That’s exciting when I see kids that we’ve raised really, RJ, get something,” Freeze explained. “Now, Logan gets something, and put Michael (Chorowicz) in his place at GA, one of our own here. I’m happy for all our guys when they get opportunities that they think better advance them.”
“If you look at the coaches that have left me and gone on, they’ve done pretty dang good every where they are,” Freeze continued. “I think it speaks for our culture and our program. I’m happy for them. It speaks volumes for our program and our guys. Y’all don’t know it because I don’t talk about it a lot, but that’s not the only ones that have had chances to leave and, fortunately, we’re at a good place that most people are choosing for them and their career it’s right for them to stay here. Obviously, if you are young and you’re not on the field and you get a chance, you need to do that. We’re happy for those, but also happy that most are choosing to stay.”
