Before the Clippers, Bell held coaching posts at the University of Wyoming, Southern Utah University, and at his alma mater, University of Nevada, where he helped lead the team to the 2012 conference title.

But, every step of the way, Bell’s coaches noticed his positivity, relationship building strengths, and natural ability to motivate everyone
around him. Time and again, mentors encouraged him to consider coaching. Focused solely on his original goal, Bell continued his playing
career, but once he gave coaching a try, he was hooked. He’s known for turning players into thinkers and reactors of the game

versions of themselves. The way he sees it, basketball gave so much to him, he’s happy to be giving back. Bell resides in Los Angeles and when he’s not on the court, you may find him on TV! He’s had recent appearances on Blacki–sh and The Upshaws.
