The Miami Hurricanes are the only ACC Football Program that has yet to break ground on an indoor practice facility. Head Football Coach Mark Richt understands the importance of this building and was quick to social media to thank Beason. Even though he spelled his name wrong!
Thank you John Beason for your generous contribution to the indoor practice facility! U Family!— Mark Richt (@MarkRicht) February 16, 2017
Beason, who played for the Canes from 2003 to 2006, was drafted No. 25 overall by the Carolina Panthers in 2007. He spent ten years in the NFL as a linebacker with the Panthers and the Giants, and was a 3-time pro bowler from 2008 to 2010.
