Former West Virginia Mountaineers football coach Bill Stewart, 59, collapsed during a golf tournament according to a report, suffering what MetroNews' Chris Lawrence is calling "an apparent heart attack." MetroNews reports Stewart was rushed to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, with no further updates available yet. He was reportedly with former Mountaineers athletic director Eddie Pastilong.
Stewart lost his job at WVU last year during a complicated incident involving offensive coordinator and coach-in-waiting Dana Holgorsen. He had a 28-12 record at West Virginia, including a 2008 Fiesta Bowl victory over Oklahoma upon taking over for Rich Rodriguez, who'd left for Michigan.
Previously, Stewart had coached at WVU since 2000 as an assistant, with stints in the CFL, North Carolina and Air Force among his stops along the way.
