It's pretty obvious he SUCKS at coaching and a high school student can coach a better offensive line than Newsome.
So why did Beamer retain him for so long?
Was he at least popular with the guys as Stinespring was?
Did he want the best for our kids and want them to graduate and get a degree?
Is he an awesome human being?
what other than his football skills (lack of) did Beamer see in that guy?
He was extremely good at not getting fired despite annually bad results.

I know several hs coaches who coached w/him in the all star games and they really liked him. I know he and Mike Smith got along which was a big thing and he got us Tyrod. after that things look like they went downhill fast.
