The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame announced the 2018 College Football Hall of Fame class, which includes former Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, two other coaches and multiple players.

Beamer's college record stands at 280-144-4 (65.9%). He coached Murray State from 1981-1986 and Virginia Tech from 1987-2015. He is the winningest coach in Virginia Tech history and has won 7 conference championships and 11 bowl games. Beamer's 280 career victories rank 6th in FBS history and are the 13th most by a college football coach at any NCAA division.

The announcement of the 2018 Class was made Monday live on ESPN's SportsCenter in Atlanta, the site of the College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship, which will be played Monday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium between Alabama and Georgia.

Frank Beamer and Matt Stinchcomb will join Mack Brown in participating in the coin toss on the field during the championship game.
