Statement on Tech head coach Frank Beamer

Head Coach Frank Beamer Underwent Successful Throat Surgery

“We waited until the end of the regular season to surgically address an issue with Coach Beamer’s throat,” said Dr. Gunnar Brolinson, D.O, Head Team Physician. “The procedure went as planned, without complications, and he simply needs some rest before he returns to his normal routine. He’s been cleared to continue his game planning and film study and will return to the practice field as soon as possible. I fully expect Coach Beamer to coach in his 22nd consecutive bowl game.”

Coach Beamer is home and is resting comfortably in Blacksburg.
