Liberty head coach and former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has been named the new head coach at Auburn; Per AUTigers:

Hugh Freeze has been named the 31st head football coach in Auburn's 129-year history, Athletics Director John Cohen announced Monday. An experienced head coach at the collegiate level for 12 years, Freeze has quickly elevated each program he's led, including Ole Miss and most recently, Liberty.

The head coach at Liberty from 2019-22, Freeze led the Flames to four bowl games and a 34-15 record. During his tenure at Liberty, he took former Auburn quarterback Malik Willis and developed him into one of the nation's top quarterbacks in 2021.

"After a thoughtful, thorough, and well-vetted search, we ended where we started, with Hugh Freeze," Cohen said. "Of all the candidates we considered, Hugh was the best fit. Fit has several meanings, but the most important factors were student-athlete development, football strategy, recruiting and SEC experience."

Hugh Freeze reminds me of that guy everybody thinks is a solid stand up guy. Goes to church every Sunday but is a sleeze ball behind the scene.

Oh wait, didn't he get caught being a Sleeze ball at Ole Miss.
