He also held graduate assistant positions at Tennessee (2001-03) and Georgia Tech (2000). At South Carolina, Beamer coordinated the special teams and coached outside linebackers. His 2009 special teams unit blocked five kicks, tying for the SEC lead and ranking eighth in the nation. In his final two years in Columbia, Beamer also served as recruiting coordinator.

    So glad we are finally getting a Special Teams Coach, it is about time! Welcome to UGA Mr. Beamer. I’m hoping Kirby and all the new coaches will continue to put the Lord first and guide our young men not only to athletic excellence but to spiritual excellence as well.
