An official cause of death has not been announced yet. He was set to begin his fifth season when his death happened.
“We are stunned to hear this tragic news,” Skyhawks athletic director Kurt McGuffin said. “Coach Stewart was a true leader to every one of the young men he coached. He emphasized the meaning of a college degree and instilled professionalism in each of his student-athletes. We ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Stewart was named the Skyhawks head coach on November 3rd, 2016. He went 51-73 in his first four seasons.
His best season at the school was a 22-13 mark during his first season. The team lost in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament second-round.
However, the past three seasons, it’s been downhill from the 22-win season.
Last season, he guided the program to a 9-20 mark. Over the past three seasons, Stewart guided the Skyhawks to a 31-60 record.
“What I will remember most about Coach Stewart was his focus in developing our young men to be leaders in their community, leaders in the workforce and leaders in their homes,” UT Martin Chancellor Dr. Keith Carver said. “He always stressed the development of the entire person, well beyond athletics.”
An interim head coach has not been announced yet.
