The return home for the Catamounts should also feel extra sweet for Kerwin Bell, after he picked up his first two wins as WCU’s head coach. Catamount fans should be thrilled for him and his future with the program. He has a long track record of success both as a coach and a player after beginning his collegiate career as a walk-on at the University of Florida. Bell was the SEC Player of the Year in 1984 as Florida’s QB before being drafted in the 7th round by the Miami Dolphins in 1988. He then went on to play 13 years of professional football in the NFL, CFL, and WLAF including stops with the Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Indianapolis Colts. After coaching Jacksonville University for 9 seasons, Coach Bell led the Valdosta State Blazers to a Division II Championship in 2018. His QB there? Rogan Wells. It’s been a challenging first season for Coach Bell but look for his group to finish strong as they continue to build something special in Cullowhee!
