USC assistant football coach Shane Beamer is being mentioned as a potential candidate for the Murray State vacancy. Beamer is the Gamecocks recruiting coordinator and special teams coach. He is the son of Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer. Frank was the head coach at Murray State before he took over the Hokies program.
Beamer is 32 years old. He told Gamecock beat writer Joe Person earlier that he would be flattered if he was contacted by Murray State about its job opening. You have to think that if the opportunity arises Beamer will at least interview and entertain a potential offer from the school. Murray State has been a stepping stone for other D-1 coaches like Houston Nutt.
