Beamer's specific role with the Gamecocks was not announced. Calls to his home and cell phone were not answered.
This is latest change to both staff and assignments for 2007 for Croom. In January, after releasing original staff members Guy Holliday and Amos Jones, he hired Charlie Harbison and Pat Washington as new coaches. Their specific jobs were to be announced next week, prior to the February 26 start of spring practices. Croom said this latest departure complicates the process, but that all roles will be settled before the Bulldogs open their camp.
