Shane Beamer on Virginia Tech Job


Recommended Posts

Well , now the rumors have started Shane to Virginia Tech the noise is getting very loud in Blacksburg Virginia, and the fans are restless why Shane has not said anything about it the ESPN crew seems to always circulate South Carolina in bad rumors.  To all the fans at South Carolina that say Tanner made the wrong hire . Well hold on you may just get you're wish .  

The fans at Virginia Tech are wanting someone that was in the circle of Frank Beamer and who else is closer to his dad than Shane,  Big time boosters are really trying to make the plea to go get Beamer now. They believe if he is offered the job he would leave for Blacksburg, Paul F, and other people believe that he would not say no and leave South Carolina after 1 year,  Paul believes that even though Beamer has made improvements that he would leave for the school he played at.   

There are no other sources other than Greg MC Elroy , and Paul F.  Beamer supposedly talked about the job with Paul F.

Started by that idiot Pawl.  I don’t think Beamer wants to go to a program where his dad was a legend and try to make that program competitive again always living in the shadow of his dad and unrealistic expectations, although some GC fans are also unrealistic so you never know

Well if this happens if I repeat, I have seen it all. ex-Gamecock HC coach getting another power five Head job. 

Good point. When in the past 40 years has any of our head Coaches left for another power 5 school? Never. 

We have had 3 coaches that could have left. Joe Mo, Holtz and SOS. One died, the other 2 retired while coaching here. Every other coach we have had in that period has sucked and no other program would have given them a job as a HC. Sad but true. 

Jury is still out on Beamer.

Just saying Paul seems to everyday now downgrade the job at South Carolina, and the rest of the ESPN staff is not any better, they just think you cannot win here .  The only person I have heard say that it's a good place is Tim Tebow, he has  said multiple times with the right coaching staff South CAROLINA IS AS GOOD AS ANY PLACE IN THE COUNTRY.

Pawl has his head up Saban’s rear end.   He does not know Jack sh&$ about football.   He is a typical bandwagon fan that somehow got a show.   Still not sure how that happened

I personally don’t see Beamer leaving, this is the job he wanted and knew the challenge when he took the job.  I have said it many times and still stand by my it, Beamer was and still is my first choice for the HC here.  Listening to him speak he wants to be here and loves this team as much as the fans.

I would not want to be in my daddy’s shoes. Huge shoes to fill. 
 

And I wonder how much time VT would give Beamer if things weren’t working out. Elder Beamer got a lot of time but times are different now. 
 

I don’t see it happening but if it did would I be all that upset….I dunno.

When they fire then VT going to make Dabo and a couple others say no, but they’re basically all in agreement that Napier is their plan B and they’d be happy with that. Beamer not going nowhere.

Was anybody else surprised that neither Napier of Chadwell, riding high with their teams' success last year, didn't get a job offer last winter? Made me wonder why, that's for sure.

I guess the power 5 schools are an little bit worried  , that some of their coach hires has not worked as well as they thought, I think they will be 

getting offers at end of year . Napier's name is already beginning to come to the front with some media people. Asking would he be good for this school or that school.  I'll be shocked if  Chadwell is still at Costal after this year.  The other  questions are and  weather they get an power 5 job is  what happens at U.S.C.  trojans,  Penn State , L.SU.  and an few others . I 'd like to see Riley leave the sooners, then Tennessee would lose their guy.

Chadwell had wins vacated at Charleston Southern by the NCAA and we all know what a joke the NCAA can be at times.

It would be easier for a guy like Chadwell to go to the NFL with a team willing to take a chance on him and not have to worry about NCAA BS.

Maybe the Jags?

This was already out there when we hired Shane.

Quote

The University of Georgia fined assistant coach Shane Beamer $25,000 for his role in the Wake Forest leaking scandal on Thursday. Beamer is a former assistant coach at Virginia Tech, which is one of the three schools to be publicly identified for taking game planning information from former Wake Forest radio analyst Tommy Elrod.

Georgia’s fine of Beamer is an acknowledgement and admonishment from the school of his involvement in the leaking scandal. A source told Sports Illustrated last week that the leaked plays involved trick plays that Wake Forest was considering running when it played Virginia Tech in 2014. The game was still scoreless at the end of regulation before Wake Forest won 6–3 in double overtime.

"While at Virginia Tech, I was contacted by Tommy Elrod the night before our game against Wake Forest in 2014," Beamer said in a statement. "I had known him for several years through coaching circles so I did not think it unusual he would be calling me. During these communications, however, he told me about a few plays that he said Wake Forest might run during the game on Saturday ... I realize I made a serious mistake in judgment by accepting the information and failing to notify officials at Virginia Tech of the communications. I sincerely apologize to Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, the ACC and the University of Georgia for my mistake. I am truly sorry."

The revelation of Beamer’s involvement may again raise the question as to whether other Virginia Tech coaches on the staff knew about the leaked in formation. Both head coach Frank Beamer, who is now retired, and current Hokies defensive coordinator Bud Foster have publicly denied any involvement. (Shane Beamer is Frank’s son). But the revelation that Beamer, who was Virginia Tech’s associate head coach and running backs coach, took the compromised information raises the question of whom he shared the information with. In a statement last week in which he admitted Virginia Tech was involved in the Wake Forest leaks scandal, Hokies athletic director Whit Babcock acknowledged Frank Beamer and Foster’s denial of involvement and said, “I believe and support both of them wholeheartedly.”

Definitely a close call for VT.

No baggage for us, though.  Shane's better off staying here and becoming a successful HC, which I believe will happen.  It's just bumpy right now while he is learning the ropes as an actual HC.

Bumpy, I'll say it's more like being on an rollercoaster that has no brakes on it he should be grateful to South Carolina.   I was for Beamer but it's been an wild ride so far, the biggest thing he has no talent that is that good in SEC play . If you like being just o.k.  that's fine.   He has lost an bunch of commits in the last 2 weeks.
