    Beamer announces additional assignments to Tech staff
    Shane Beamer named associate head coach, among other moves

    BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer announced Tuesday several additional assignments to his coaching staff.

    Shane Beamer, who was previously announced as the running backs coach, will now also be the associate head coach. Bryan Stinespring will retain the title of offensive coordinator but will pass the duties of gameday play-calling to quarterbacks coach Mike O'Cain. Additionally, Stinespring will take over the offensive tackles to go along with his current coaching duties with the tight ends, and Curt Newsome will now coach just the offensive guards and the center position, as opposed to the entire line, which he coached the previous five seasons.

    On defense, Torrian Gray will take over the rovers position and will now coach the entire defensive backfield. Beamer previously announced the hiring outside linebackers coach Cornell Brown, who will also help out with the defensive ends.
