Inside Sparta had confirmed with Hugh Freeze that he has left the San Jose State football program to take a position with Arkansas State.
"It was a tough decision, especially since I had just gotten there and believe in what Mike (MacIntyre) is doing there," Freeze said. "But I've had some serious family issues arise where it was best for me to be closer to home."
Freeze will be the offensive coordinator for the RedWolves and is already in Jonesboro.
"We just arrived today," he said. "I want to make it clear that this was strictly a personal decision and had nothing to do with my experience there or the people at San Jose State. I'm sad to leave and I know they have great things in store.
SJSU head coach Mike MacIntyre hasn't yet returned a phone call seeking comment, and a replacement has yet to be named.
