Report: Liberty's Hugh Freeze to Travel to Louisiana and Coach in Medical Chair

Liberty's Hugh Freeze will reportedly travel for the Flames' game against Louisiana and coach from a medical chair in the press box on Saturday night.

Athletic director Ian McCaw told The News & Advance that Freeze's medical chair, which is designed to elevate and reduce stress on his back, is set to arrive in Lafayette on Friday. McCaw said Freeze intends to fly on a private jet from Lynchburg to Lafayette on Saturday ahead of the 7:30 p.m. ET contest.

Despite previous reports describing the special seat as a "dental chair," Liberty spokesperson Todd Wetmore told Yahoo the university does not consider it as that.
