Longtime Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer was honored by the General Assembly on Thursday with center-aisle presentations in both the Virginia House of Delegates and the Senate, the Roanoke Times reports.
Beamer retired at the end of the 2015 season after coaching the Hokies for 29 years, which included 23 straight bowl appearances.
The Hokies won 66 percent of their games with Beamer as their coach, compiling a 238-121-2 record.
Also on Thursday, Gov. Terry McAuliff declared the day as "Frank Beamer Day"
