“Head Ball Coach” was a two-time ACC Coach of the Year and five-time SEC Coach of the Year.

He played in the NFL from 1967-1976.

Beamer has a head coaching record of 280-143-4, the first six years with Murray State and then 29 years at Virginia Tech. While at Virginia Tech, he had a record of 238-121-2 and made a bowl game every year from 1993-2015, his final season at the school.

He was a three-time Big East Coach of the Year and two-time ACC winner.
