Shane Beamer possible candidate to replace Bill Curry at Georgia State

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

Could Shane Beamer get his first head coaching opportunity at Georgia State?

Following Bill Curry's recent retirement, Georgia State has been conducting a search for a new head football coach, and Shane Beamer could be a leading candidate, according to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Beamer is currently the associate head coach and running backs coach for Virginia Tech, and has not provided much information about the job. He insists that he is focused on getting the Hokies ready for their game against Virginia on Saturday. Shane Beamer's father, Frank, is the head coach at Virginia Tech.

Beamer's resume indicates that he is likely ready to make the jump into head coaching. He played for Virginia Tech, and then earned a master's in sports science at Tennessee. He then worked at Mississippi State for three seasons and South Carolina for four. On the field, Beamer coached running backs, cornerbacks, linebackers, and special teams. And off the field, he coordinated recruiting operations.

This diverse experience makes Beamer a worthy hire. The Georgia State job offers a great training facility and home games at the Georgia Dome, but the team is 1-10 this season and attendance has been steadily decreasing.
