    UT Martin Basketball Coach Dies Unexpectedly At 50

    The University of Tennessee at Martin men's basketball coach, Anthony Stewart, died suddenly on Sunday. He was 50 years old. Stewart's passing comes as the team was slated to open its season later this month. He was preparing to enter his fifth season at the helm of the Skyhawks program.

    "We are stunned to hear this tragic news," Skyhawk 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."

    The cause of Stewart's death at this time is unknown. Stadium's Jeff Goodman reports that he tested negative for COVID-19 this past Monday.

    It's unclear at this time who will take over the program in the wake of Stewart's sudden passing. Whoever it is will inherit a team that went 9-20 last season but has plenty of talented stars, among them Parker Stewart, Anthony's son, who transferred from Pittsburgh in 2018 to play for his father. Stewart averaged 19.2 points per game last season.
