Michael Oher’s Former Football Coach Reacts to “Sad” Tuohy Lawsuit


Michael Ohers former football coach is weighing in on his “sad” family feud.

Coach Hugh Freeze told The Athletic Aug. 17 that he thinks the “facts will come out” after Oher filed a legal petition claiming Memphis couple Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy lied about adopting him and actually became his conservators after he turned 18. Oher, a retired NFL player, alleged the Tuohy family profited off of his life story through the 2009 movie The Blind Side, per the documents obtained by E! News. 

Freeze—who worked with Oher as the coach at Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis and then as assistant coach at Ole Miss—noted, “I think it’s sad.”

“I certainly don’t claim to understand all the ins and outs of adoption, conservatory, all of that. I know what I witnessed,” he continued. “I witnessed a family that totally took in a young man and I think without that, there is no story.”

In response to the lawsuit, Sean Tuohy told the Daily Memphian Aug. 14 he was “devastated” by the allegations, adding, “It’s upsetting to think we would make money off any of our children.”
