Carolina’s Beamer Heads To Papa, Virginia Tech

Shane Beamer is heading home.

The former South Carolina special teams coordinator and recruiting coordinator is joining his father’s staff at Virginia Tech as the Hokies’ new running backs coach.  Tech announced the move late yesterday.

Beamer has coached at Carolina for four seasons.  This offseason, safeties coach was taken from his job description.  Steve Spurrier said he wanted Beamer to focus more on special teams and his recruiting coordinator job.

Spurrier said that Beamer had been looking for a chance to join his father’s staff.  “I think it’s a wonderful move for Shane to get to coach with his dad.  The opportunity to coach with him had never come up, and it came up.  We wish Shane well.”

Spurrier’s son serves on Carolina’s staff, of course.  “Shane did a super job recruiting not only his guys this year but coordinating all the recruiting.  He’s been an excellent coach here.  We understand coaching with your dad is something you should do.”

Now the Ol’ Ball Coach is left to find a new special teams coordinator.  He says he’ll look to fill the slot by hiring a pure special teams guy.  Spurrier said the recruiting coordinator job will likely go to someone else on the staff – a young coach like running backs coach Jay Graham? — because of familiarity within the state.

FootballScoop.com wonders openly if Spurrier will attempt to talk to Tony Levine of Houston, Tim Salem of UCF or Joe Pannunzio who just moved from Miami to Alabama to take over as Nick Saban’s director of football operations.
