Bill Stewart is a racist. While coaching VMI, the devout Christian called one of his players the &quot;N-word.&quot; Thomas Haskins, a former VMI All-America running back who played for the Keydets during each of Stewart's three seasons as head coach, said yesterday that he remembers the incident because &quot;I was right there. I was in the mix.&quot; The player involved was Kelly Cook, a teammate with whom Haskins said he was close. Haskins, a former Highland Springs High standout who is African-American, said Stewart made his controversial comment &quot;in the heat of the moment. It was just an unfortunate situation that will always be a part of [Stewart]. It's like getting cut when you're small. That mark will still be there when you're 50 years old.&quot; Please WVU, reconsider your decision.
