In the second half of the loss to West Virginia on Wednesday, Beamer slapped Ernest Willford's helmet. Now members of the Virginia Tech Black Alumni network are calling for Tech president Charles Steger to speak out against the incident. The letter states: "Although we respect what Coach Beamer has done in building the football program, he should be held to the same standard as any other university official. We cannot imagine that the university administration would remain silent if a professor struck a student in the classroom." The letter goes on to state the the Black Alumni Network is encouraged by Beamer's apology, the school admnistration needs to make it clear that it is not acceptable for a employee to strike a student in any circumstance.
