Frank Beamer was at Virginia Tech for a very long time already, and sportsbook software services were glad to learn that he won’t be leaving the school any time soon.
On Wednesday, Virginia Tech announced that Beamer’s contract was extended for two more years – throughout the 2019 season. Many fans of the Huskies were very happy when they found out that the coach won’t be going anywhere, considering how much he helped the team.
“As I’ve stated numerous times, the only job I desire is right here at Virginia Tech,” Beamer said. “My passion and commitment have been further energized with the arrivals of President (Tim) Sands and Whit Babcock and the leadership and vision they provide. I am appreciative of the confidence they continue to show in me and our football program. I can honestly tell you that our program currently stands atop a rock-solid foundation. This coaching staff is the best I’ve ever had. We’ve had an influx of talented, young student-athletes into our program and we’re hard at work recruiting more just like them. So, I’m confident in the character and talent of our coaches, players and support staff.
Then, you see this impressive, state-of-the-art indoor practice facility on its way up, which shows the continuing dedication from this university, its people and our fans, and our future can only be bright. I’m proud of where we’ve been, and I’m extremely excited about where we’re going.”
When Virginia Tech – led by Beamer – face William & Mary on Saturday’s game, it will be the start of his 28th season leading the team. Virginia Tech were able to go 266-132-4 in 27 years, and 266 of the team’s victories ended up setting a record of the most wins ever made by a school coach. Sportsbook software services saw that Beamer was also able to win seven conference titles with the Hokies (three won in the Big East and four won in the ACC), and the last one was won in 2010.
Fans of the Huskies know what a legend Beamer is, and are believe that he’ll continue to be a vital part of Virginia Tech football.
