Morgantown, W. VA., - Former West Virginia football coach Bill Stewart died from an apparent heart attack, school officials announced Monday.
A statement issued by West Virginia spokesman Michael Fragale says Stewart's family notified the university on Monday. Fragale had no 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, 59, was the head football coach at VMI from 1994 to 1996.
