Liberty Flames Head Coach Hugh Freeze Coached from Hospital Bed in the Coaches Box in First Game of the College Football Season

It’s hard to doubt Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze’s dedication after he coached against Syracuse on Saturday from a coaches’ box hosptial bed at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, VA. But Freeze’s strange setup certainly resulted in some interesting images during Saturday’s broadcast.

Freeze arrived in the stadium in a wheelchair, then posted up in his hospital bed as the Flames hosted No. 22 Syracuse. Let’s just say Freeze looked a little out of place attempting to lead his squad, which lost 24–0 to the Orange.
