Lane Kiffin was consistently seen as Auburn’s top candidate to become the Tiger’s next head coach. With news breaking that Kiffin is staying at Ole Miss, Auburn has pivoted to Hugh Freeze as their new top choice.
According to a report from Brett McMurphy of the Action Network, Freeze has told Liberty officials that he is talking with Auburn officials but has not yet decided if he’s leaving.
Despite the fact that he has not yet informed them of his decision the school is preparing to search for their next head coach McMurphy reported.
Freeze has been the head coach at Liberty since 2019 and has a 34-15 record. The Flames have made a bowl in each of the past three seasons. Prior to that, he was the head coach at Ole Miss from 2012-16 and had a 39-25 record before he resigned.
