University of Tennessee basketball coach Anthony Stewart died suddenly on Sunday. He was 50 years old. Stewart’s death comes as the team was due to open its season later this month. He was preparing to enter his fifth season at the helm of Skyhawks.

“We were shocked to hear this tragic news,” said Skyhawk’s sporting director, Kurt McGoffin. «  Coach Stewart was a true captain for every young man he coached. He emphasized the meaning of college degrees and instilled professionalism in each of his student-athletes. We ask for privacy during this difficult time.

The cause of Stuart’s death at this time is unknown. Jeff Goodman of the stadium reported that he had tested negative for COVID-19 last Monday.

Stewart took over as Utah Martin coach in 2016 when he was promoted from assistant head coach to head coach to succeed Heath Schroer.. In his first season, he led the Skyhawk to 22 victories, tying the school record for most victories in a single season.. That season, the Skyhawks won their first-ever Live Championship at the Western Ohio Valley Conference Championships.

“What I will remember most about Coach Stuart is his focus on developing our youth to be leaders in their community, leaders in the workforce and leaders in their homes,” University of Utah Martin Counselor Dr.. . Keith Carver said. “He always emphasized the development of the whole person, apart from athletics.

Martin began his athletics career as a baseball and basketball player for Mount Union in the early 1990s. In his early years, he paid his dues as an aide in the small college circuit – in Columbus State and in Long Beach State – before applying to work as an aide in Wyoming in 2007.. He then stopped off as an assistant in Southern Illinois, Ohio and Yo Martin in the years that followed before UT Martin raised him for the position of their president as coach..

It is not clear at this time who will take over the program in the wake of Stewart’s sudden death. Whatever it is, he will inherit the team that went 9-20 last season but has a lot of talented stars, among them Parker Stewart, Anthony’s son, who moved from Pittsburgh in 2018 to play with his father.. . Stewart averaged 19. Two points for every game last season.
