Former West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart died Monday afternoon, the school announced, after collapsing on a golf course while suffering an apparent heart attack. Good football moments were trickier to come by on his watch in recent years, but our favorite Mountaineers game of the Stewart era was his first: that fateful date with Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.
He is survived by his wife, Karen, and son Blaine. Our sincere condolences to the Stewart family. RIP, Whittlin’ Bill.
