METALLICA has recorded a special video message for Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer, who announced on November 1 that he would be retiring at the end of the season. Check out the clip below.
Since the 2000 season, METALLICA‘s “Enter Sandman” has been Virginia Tech football’s unofficial theme song, blaring over the Lane Stadium loudspeakers when the Hokies emerge from the tunnel.
In 2011, METALLICA even recognized this by taping a special message to be played on the video board at Lane Stadium before a game against the Miami Hurricanes.
Beamer has coached at Virginia Tech for 29 seasons and helped transform the Hokies into a national power.
