Frank Beamer Wants His Eventual Replacement At Virginia Tech To Come From His Staff

Frank Beamer is Virginia Tech football. Nearly everything the Hokies’ program has become is a result of the work of the 68-year-old coach, who has been in Blacksburg, Va., since 1987.  There will be a time – probably in the near future – when that isn’t the case. Beamer is getting up there in age and will likely retire sooner rather than later.  Who will replace him?...
