GRAPHIC=MARCUS VICK Marcus Vick's tumultuous career


at Virginia Tech is over.

This evening University President
Charles Steger announced that the
all-ACC quarterback has been
permanently dismissed from the team.

Mike Stevens now joins us, and
Mike I think most people felt Vick
would only be suspended a game or so.

GRAPHIC=NONE Jean, when Tech announced this


afternoon that President Steger, Jim

Weaver and Frank Beamer were holding a
newsconference tomorrow - a suspension
was on the way.

But at just about the same time
that fax was sent out, word surfaced on
the state's General District Court
website that Vick had been issued two
traffic summons on Saturday, December
17th - one for speeding and one for
driving with a suspended license.

To some it may seem minor, but
for Vick - It was the last straw. And
just a minute or two before five
tonight, the announcement came that
Vick was finished as a Hokie.

This afternoon Frank Beamer flew
to the Tidewater area and met with the
Vicks.

He then had to appear at a
fundraiser at Hampton high school
tonight.

And he stopped briefly on his way
inside the school to offer these
thoughts on Vick's departure.

in the morning for going 38 in a 25.

They soon discovered he was
driving on a suspended license.

Police say Vick was given a
summons after a friend in the vehicle
offered to drive home.

We do not know why or when his
license was suspended, it could be for
a number of reasons... maybe a ticket
in another Virginia County or problems
with the DMV.

INSERT STAND-UP....

This was apparently the last
strike for Vick who was warned a year

not to get into any more trouble.

families.

Topping the donation list, the Sago

Meanwhile, an eight member team has
