Glenn Bell Named Varsity Football Coach
Congratulations, Coach Bell!
Westminster Schools of Augusta has named Glenn Bell its varsity football coach. Coach Bell succeeds Andrew Bryan in the role, who is moving on to pursue full-time ministry.
Bell's coaching career at Westminster coincided with the introduction of the football program in 2009. He has served at all levels of the program in key coordinator positions - offense, defense, and special teams - as well as multiple position coaching assignments. Bell also serves as the Social Studies Department Chair and Upper School Social Studies teacher. Prior to his positions at Westminster, Bell served at Cathedral Academy in North Charleston, S.C. as Middle School Head Coach and as a JV assistant.
Bell is grateful for the opportunity and support provided by Athletic Director, Andrew Bryan, and incoming Head of School, Dr. Shawn Brower. “I’m incredibly excited to step into this new role and have the opportunity to help this team grow not only as football players but as godly young men,” Bell said. “I am very grateful for the support of Dr. Brower and Coach Bryan in this endeavor and I look forward to the upcoming season.”
Bell is married to Lee and they have two daughters, Sarah and Caroline. Coach Bell earned his B.A. in History from Augusta University, and his M.A. from the College of Charleston and The Citadel.
"I am extremely excited about the hiring of Glenn Bell as the next head varsity football coach at Westminster,” said Westminster Athletic Director Andrew Bryan. “He has many years of coaching experience and has been a key leader and coach on our staff. Coach Bell brings an immense knowledge of the game, but also a desire to build football players into young men of character as he seeks to compete each and every day on the field. He receives my full support, and I believe the future is bright for Westminster football."
Of Coach Bell, incoming Head of School Dr. Shawn Brower said: ”Coach Glenn Bell’s commitment to developing godly character, while positively shaping the lives of young men through football is of highest value and significance in his role as our new Westminster Head Football Coach. His priorities to honor Christ above all else, his existing positive relationships with his players and his years as a successful offensive coordinator will all serve him well as he leads our Wildcats in summer training and games this fall. I am excited to support him in this important leadership role and can’t wait to watch the Wildcats take the field!”
