Bell was hired as the Hoosiers offensive coordinator in December 2021. This came following a three-year stint as the UMass Minutemen head coach, where he went 2-23 as a head coach. 

Before UMass, he spent one season as the Florida State Seminoles offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2018. He also spent two seasons as the Maryland Terrapins offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. 

Bell has been a college coach since 2007. He also bounced around from Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns, Memphis Tigers, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles, North Carolina Tar Heels, and the Arkansas State Red Wolves. 

Under Bell, the Hoosiers are averaging 20.80 points per game. They have scored just 104 points in five games. 

Their highest output of the season was 41 points in a 41-7 win over the Indiana State Sycamores on Friday, September 8th. 

Their other win came in a 29-27 win over the Akron Zips in four overtimes on Saturday, September 23rd.
