Bill Stewart Named West Virginia Head Coach

After leading the 11th-ranked Mountaineers to a 48-28 win over number-three Oklahoma, Bill Stewart gets to drop the interim tag from his head coaching job at West Virginia.

The school will introduce him at a news conference today at the team's hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Stewart was the associate head coach on the staff of Rich Rodriguez, who left the school to take the Michigan coaching job.

Stewart's previous head coaching experience was at VMI in the mid-90s. He also was an assistant coach at Salem College, North Carolina, Marshall, William and Mary, Navy, Arizona State and Air Force.

He came to West Virginia as the quarterbacks coach in 2000 after two seasons coaching in the Canadian Football League.
