Frank Beamer Wants His Eventual Replacement At Virginia Tech To Come From His Staff

Frank Beamer is Virginia Tech football. Nearly everything the Hokies' program has become is a result of the work of the 68-year-old coach, who has been in Blacksburg, Va., since 1987. 

There will be a time - probably in the near future - when that isn't the case. Beamer is getting up there in age and will likely retire sooner rather than later. 

Who will replace him? If Beamer has any say in the matter, it will be someone from his Virginia Tech staff. 

Virginia Tech's long-time defensive coordinator, Bud Foster, is the logical choice. Foster, one of the country's top defensive minds, has been coaching at VT since 1987.
