Bill Stewart's Funeral, Memorial Schedules Set

Memorial arrangements are now in place for former West Virginia Mountaineers coach Bill Stewart, who passed away Monday after suffering an apparent heart attack while playing golf.

On Thursday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m ET., a public memorial will be held at Morgantown's Waterfront Events Center, followed by a private Mass on Friday morning at St. Francis DeSales Church, also in Morgantown. Stewart's body will be buried in New Martinsville, his hometown.

Since his passing, Stewart has been remembered by state dignitaries and by WVU fans, along with dozens of former players and coaches and media members, as a kind coach and devoted family man. He took over a Mountaineers program that had just been left by its homegrown star and led it to a Fiesta Bowl upset victory, eventually putting up a 28-12 record in Morgantown.
