Florida State takes out ad in Virginia paper saluting Frank Beamer


We have seen coaches and players everywhere offer congratulatory words for retiring Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer. Florida State, however, made sure its message was felt locally.

The Seminoles took out an ad Saturday in the Roanoke Times, according to Erik Hall, the paper’s assistant sports editor.

Bravo, Seminoles. That’s a new, thoughtful way to make sure Beamer’s career has been appreciated both near and far.
