Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer retires effective end of season


First reported by media sources, and now confirmed by Virginia Tech itself, legendary Hokies coach Frank Beamer is stepping down at season's end.

With his departure, the winningest active coach in FBS heading into the off-season will be either Gary Pinkel of Missouri or Bill Snyder; they're both tied with 190 wins right now, so it's a race to the post.
