RICHMOND, VA (WSLS 10) -  Governor Terry McAuliffe proclaims February 4th, 2016 as "Frank Beamer Day."

He made the declaration as Virginia Tech came to the Capitol for its annual lobby day.

The Virginia House of Delegates honored the former Hokies head football coach with a copy of the resolution, which was passed by both the House and the Senate.

"From Fancy Gap, Virginia, to be here in the State Capitol," said Beamer. "To have all these wonderful Hokies around me, what a neat day!"

Beamer retired at the end of the last football season after 29 years leading the team.
