MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Former West Virginia University football coach Bill Stewart has died of what the athletic department says was an apparent heart attack.
It happened Monday afternoon, but the university did not immediately release any further details.
Stewart resigned last summer and was replaced by Dana Holgorsen the same night.
He'd gone 28-12 in three seasons after taking over for Rich Rodriguez but failed to earn a Bowl Championship Series berth.
Stewart had signed a six-year contract in September 2008. That agreement was amended in 2010 when Athletic Director Oliver Luck decided to replace him.
