Liberty head football coach Hugh Freeze was a guest Wednesday morning on Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis as he discussed Liberty’s 6-0 start to the 2020 season.

Clay Travis asked Freeze what he would say to other big schools that may come calling for him to be their next head coach.

“I’m thankful for Liberty,” said Freeze in response to the question. “I’m thankful that they took the time to sit down with Jill and I and hear our story and give us this opportunity. We’ve found a tremendous home here. I have a great, great job. I don’t think any coach can ever say, I’ll never leave a certain job until you get to a certain point in your life, but I can tell you this, there’s very few that would interest me to leave here. Jill is happy here. My girls are happy here. We’re blessed.”

Freeze has been rumored as a possible candidate for several jobs, some that aren’t even open yet, early in the season. One of which is at his alma mater Southern Miss, the same team the Flames just defeated this past weekend, 56-28. USM head coach Jay Hopson resigned following their season opening loss to South Alabama. Interim head coach Scotty Walden just left Southern Miss this week for the head coaching job at FCS Austin Peay.

In less than two years, Freeze has led Liberty to its first ever bowl appearance and bowl win last season and the program’s first ever win over an ACC opponent. The Flames are now receiving votes in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls for the first time in school history. This week, Liberty is second among teams not ranked in the top 25, as the Flames come in at No. 27 in both polls.

“Ian McCaw is an absolute gem for an AD,” Freeze continued in his interview on Outkick. “Obviously, I love the vision that they have here, and they put their resources behind it. I really think you can build this into being one of the top non-Power Five schools in the nation in a short amount of time.”

Liberty is off this weekend before playing in the biggest game in school history against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia on Saturday, Nov. 7 with kickoff scheduled for noon on ACC Network from Lane Stadium. The Hokies travel to Kentucky to take on the Louisville Cardinals this weekend.

“Watching film on them, it’s a huge task,” Freeze told Clay Travis of the Hokies. “They’re full of Power Five players. It’s hard to see that we match up greatly on film. The great thing about football is you don’t have to be better 10 days, you just have to be better that one day. Having an extra week, I do think is beneficial for us.”
