Beamer Lands Contract Extension

Today it was announced that Hokie head coach Frank Beamer signed a 7-year contract extension until the 2012 season, paying him a reported $2 million per year, as opposed to the $1.4 million he was currently raking in.

The deal offers incentives and bonuses not only for Beamer but also for his entire coaching staff and assistants, something that the head coach was very stern about when coming to contract closure.

In fact, it had been hoped for Tech and their coach of 19 years to complete the deal before the season opener against N.C. State. However, I'm sure you all remember how Beamer refused to agree to the new contract because it didn't include raises for each of his nine full-time assistant coaches.
