Former West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart has died after suffering an apparent heart attack while playing golf Monday, the school announced on Monday.

Stewart, 59, was playing in a West Virginia Hospitality and Tourism Association annual event with former West Virginia athletic director Eddie Pastilong. According to the report, Stewart was taken to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston.

Stewart replaced Rich Rodriguez on an interim basis for the MountaineersÂ’ game against Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl (Jan. 2, 2008) on and was named head coach shortly after West Virginia won that game, 48-28.

His three teams at West Virginia each went 9-4 from 2008 until 2010 and were 1-2 in bowl games.

After it was announced that Dana Holgorsen would spend the 2011 season as offensive coordinator and become head coach in 2012, Stewart resigned after a report claimed the he attempted to smear HolgorsenÂ’s name.
