University of Texas

University of Texas Athletic Director L. Theo Bellmont hired Stewart from Clemson University to lead both the Longhorn football and basketball programs in 1923.

A medical school graduate, a piano enthusiast, a former sportswriter, a one-time automobile dealership owner, and a veteran coach, E.J. Stewart quickly became a popular figure across diverse segments of the University population. His oratory eloquence landed him an open job offer from the head of the UT English Department, should he ever decide to quit coaching and desire other work.

Some have speculated that Stewart's devotion to his varied non-athletic interests was the root cause of his football and basketball teams' decline in performance over his tenure. ["All-time Longhorn Head Coaches," [http://www.mackbrown-texasfootball.com/pages/winningtrads/coach_index.html mackbrown-texasfootball.com] ] He led the Longhorn football team to an 8-0-1 record during the 1923 season; his following teams finished with records of 5-3-1, 6-2-1, and 5-4. Stewart led the Longhorn basketball team to a perfect 23-0 mark and Southwest Conference Championship during the 1923-24 season, but his subsequent teams finished 17-8, 12-10, and 13-9.cite book |last=McConnell|first=Scott |title=2006-07 Texas Basketball Media Guide |publisher=UT Athletics, 2006 |location=Austin]

This decline in his teams' performance resulted in the popular Stewart's controversial dismissal following the 1926-27 season.

University of Texas at El Paso

He ended his career at University of Texas at El Paso where he compiled a 5-6-3 record.
