Beamer, who tallied two hundred and thirty-eight victories over twenty-nine seasons with the Hokies, retired following a 7-6 campaign in 2015 with a 55-52 win over Tulsa in the Independence Bowl. At the time of his retirement, he was the winningest active head coach in Division 1 FBS with two hundred and eighty career victories.
Beamer now serves at special assistant to the athletic director, where he performs fundraising and other booster appearances for the football program and school.
