Stinespring loses play-calling duties at Tech

Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer announced Tuesday several additional assignments to his coaching staff – most notably the effective demotion of offensive coordinator Byran Stinespring.

Stinespring will retain the title of offensive coordinator, but will pass the duties of gameday play-calling to quarterbacks coach Mike O’Cain. Stinespring will also take over the offensive tackles to go along with his current coaching duties with the tight ends. Curt Newsome will now coach just the offensive guards and the center position, as opposed to the entire line, which he coached the previous five seasons.

In other moves, Shane Beamer, the son of head coach Frank Beamer, who was previously announced as the running backs coach, will now also be the associate head coach, and on defense, Torrian Gray will take over the rovers position and will now coach the entire defensive backfield.

Beamer had previously announced the hiring outside linebackers coach Cornell Brown, who will also help out with the defensive ends.
