Stevenson, who lived in Pismo Beach, was found dead Sunday in Van Nuys. The cause of death is currently unknown and will be determined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
In 2011, Stevenson was dismissed from Cal Poly after a 2010 investigation report became public. In the report, current and former players accused Stevenson of inappropriate conduct including attempting to “pants” a player, hugging and kissing players in a way that made them feel uncomfortable and making inappropriate sexual comments.
Under Stevenson’s leadership, Cal Poly won the Big West Conference in 2006.
