The hoopies down in Morganhole announced today that assistant coach and interim head coach Bill Stewart will become the next head coach of the University of Michigan at Morgantown Mountaineers.
To me this is pretty surprising as I thought for sure Terry Bowden would make enough noise in the news and on his website to get the job, but WVU went in a different direction. We all had to realize that Nick Saban was NEVER going to consider the WVU job and anyone who thought that he actually would is delusional. Jimbo Fisher has a nice job lined up once Bowden retires which also hurt the hoopies. So in the end it is Bill Stewart. I guess WVU fans will never have to worry about him leaving WVU since he was born in West Virginia.
Time will tell how Bill Stewart does as a coach, but do you Pitt fans out there remember when Mr. Hackett had the interim title removed and what he accomplished for us? Well, if the hoopies go down that road, I can live with that.
Stewart used to be the coach at VMI for 3 seasons where he led the Keydets to a solid 8-25 record. If you want more information on Mr. Stewart feel free to check out his Wikipedia page which is full of.......well, actually it's pretty empty at the moment but I'm sure we'll see some additions very soon.
