On Sunday, November 1, two days after signing a grant-in-aid with Virginia Tech, Wise (Upper Marlboro, MD) senior Myles Wolfolk learned with the rest of the world that Hokies head coach Frank Beamer was retiring.

“I was taking a nap and my dad called me like five times,” Wolfolk said. “I finally woke up and answered the phone, and then he told me the news. I was shocked. It wasn’t the best news to wake up to.”

“I wasn’t completely surprised because I knew Coach Beamer is a little older,” Wolfolk added. “I didn’t expect him to be around forever, but I didn’t think he would leave this soon.”

Phone calls from Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock and assistant coach Torrian Gray were helpful, Wolfolk said. The 3-star defensive back prospect has plans to enroll in college in January, so the quicker Virginia Tech gets a new coach in place the better.

“I talked to the AD and he was saying they should have a coach a month before it is time for me to early enroll. I’m not worried about it,” Wolfolk said.

“I was happy [Babcock] reached out to me. It’s very generous that they are reaching out to all the commits like they are. He basically told me about the coaching situation. I was notified then that they expect to get one in December. He told me to keep a level head and not get too antsy. He wanted me to relax and not get overwhelmed with the situation. He made sure I wasn’t in the blind. I’ve had a few conversations with Coach Gray. He said almost the same thing as the AD.”
