    Beamer receives contract extension
    New pact extends through 2016

    BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced today the extension of Head Football Coach Frank Beamer’s contract through Dec. 31, 2016. Beamer’s current contract expires Dec. 31, 2012.

    “I appreciate Virginia Tech’s confidence in me leading this program,” said Beamer, who is entering his 24th season at the helm. “I believe that continuity has led to the consistency in our program, and we hope for even better days ahead.”

    Negotiations for the compensation package will begin in January of 2012 to be effective with the start of the contract extension.

    “I am very pleased that Frank Beamer will lead our football program the next seven years,” Tech Director of Athletics Jim Weaver said. “He has led the Hokies to unprecedented heights, including 17 straight bowl games and six consecutive 10-win seasons.”
