Frank Beamer is not only a football coach for Virginia Tech, but a lover of the school itself. A great football coach not only loves the game, but the players, and is an avid supporter of the institution he works for. He has a vested interest in the development of the school.
Yes, I agree that Frank Beamer is one of the greatest football coaches of all time. Despite winning a number of trophies and being one of the most successful coaches at bringing home trophies, the real reason why Frank is one of the greatest is the fact that he has, and continues to, give his time and in many ways, donate his life to his team.
Frank Beamer and team's win over Tulsa sends him off in his final game at Virginia Tech the right way. Over his coaching career he has won 280 games, but what makes this even more impressive is that he did this while only coaching for one team, Virginia Tech. To persevere through the ups and downs of coaching one team for so long and to consistently win while producing competitive football teams shows that he is one of the best college football coaches of all time.
Frank Beamer deserves to be considered one of the greatest football coaches of all time. Although he didn't win a National Championship, what he did at Virginia Tech deserves a lot of applause. He built the program from nothing and turned it into a nationally recognized name. Beamer did it the right way and deserves a lot of credit.
