Warren Bell has resigned as the Bayshore High boys basketball coach after serving three years in the position.
Bell cited personal reasons for his resignation. A physical education at Palma Sola Elementary School, he said it was difficult to work in two different places.
Bell also said he was having surgery to remove several cysts on his vocal chords and doctors recommended he not use his voice as much, which would've made coaching difficult.
This past season Bell coached Bayshore to an 11-13 record, which was his best year. He played for Manatee High and Manatee Community College in the mid seventies.
''I love the kids there and I think we were making good progress. My fondest memory came last season when we beat Southeast on our senior night," Bell said.
