Hugh Freeze is set to be one of the country's highest-paid non-Power 5 coaches after agreeing to a contract extension with Liberty, sources told ESPN's Chris Low.

The deal will reportedly pay Freeze more than $4 million per season through 2028. His salary will be at least comparable to that of five different SEC coaches, Low notes.

Freeze has compiled a 25-10 record in three seasons with the Flames. He helped lead the program to a 10-1 campaign last season, finishing No. 17 in The Associated Press rankings. Liberty is currently 7-4 ahead of its final game of the campaign against Army on Saturday.

Additionally, the Flames have won back-to-back Cure Bowls.

Freeze's extension comes after he received a new deal last year that pushed his annual salary to over $3 million and kept him with Liberty through 2026.

Considered one of the top offensive coaches in the country, Freeze led Ole Miss to a 39-25 record from 2012-2016. He resigned in 2017 after the school found a pattern of improper calls on his work-issued cellphone.
