Former West Virginia football coach Bill Stewart has died of what the athletic department says was an apparent heart attack.

A statement issued by West Virginia spokesman Michael Fragale says Stewart's family notified the university on Monday. Fragale had no further details.

Stewart resigned last summer and was replaced by Dana Holgorsen the same night.

He'd gone 28-12 in three seasons after taking over for Rich Rodriguez, but failed to earn a Bowl Championship Series berth.
