The Virginia Tech Hokies may be a team in transition, but it looks early like the smoothest transition possible. Coaching legend Frank Beamer won’t be on the sidelines for Virginia Tech this season for the first time in 30 years, but much else will remain the same under new head coach Justin Fuente. Fuente, like Beamer, is a first-rate motivator and he’s a glove-like fit for the hard-working Hokies.
