LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Fresh off earning an invite to the Cure Bowl, Liberty announced that it has signed football head coach Hugh Freeze to a new multi-year contract extension.
University president Jerry Falwell made the announcement on Twitter today. Details regarding the length of the extension and how much the deal is worth were not publicly released. But Brett McMurphy of The Stadium reported that the deal is for five-years and offers a “competitive” salary with Group of Five coaches.
Freeze led the Flames to a 7-5 record in his first season at the helm.
LU accepted an invite to the Cure Bowl on Sunday, becoming just the fifth school to play in a bowl game in its first year as a full member of the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).
