Vicksburg native Hunter Bell has been named as the strength and conditioning coach at the University of Arkansas.
“We’re excited for Coach Bell to join our staff,” Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said in a statement to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. “After a thorough and extensive search, his passion for working with student-athletes and his innovative approach to strength training and development stood out the most. He’ll be a great asset to our program.”
Bell, who is a graduate of Warren Central, played for the Vikings then went on to Hinds CC and Arkansas-Monticello where he helped the team to two conference championships.
Bell comes from Elon University where he was the assistant sports performance coach. He has also coached at the University of Tennessee-Martin, Phoenix, Missouri State, and many other schools.See a typo? Report it here.
