Bill Stewart: 1952-2012

As much as West Virginia's fans crucified Bill Stewart, his record as head coach was 28-12 including a huge upset in a BCS Bowl. He inherited a program in turmoil after a head coach left and was undermined at every step by an overambitious athletic director. Andy Talley, who is not one to mince words about opposing coaches always had great things to say about him, and a Bill Stewart coached team bitchslapped one of the best Villanova teams ever. He left that program in a better place than it was when he got there and never got any credit from WVU fans, and that's unfortunate.

Rest in peace.
