TCU has announced Eric Bell will become the new womens soccer coach at the prestigous university in Fort Worth.  Eric Bell will replace former coach Dan Abdalla who resigned after last season.  Bell spent the last six seasons with the Seminoles. After arriving as an assistant coach in 2006, he was promoted to associate head coach in 2008. Bell was Florida State's recruiting coordinator his entire tenure in Tallahassee.

As recruiting coordinator, Bell made school history as the 2007 class earned its highest national ranking. The Seminoles were recognized by Soccer Buzz with the nation's second-best recruiting class, while grabbing the top spot in the Southeast Region. At the time, both rankings were the highest garnered in program history. Of the 11 freshmen, five ranked in the top 150 by Soccer Buzz while Erin McNulty and Sanna Talonen ranked among the nation's top international recruits.


"We are very excited to welcome Eric Bell and Ryan Higginbotham to the TCU family," Del Conte said. "Eric has done an unbelievable job at Florida State and is a rising star in the collegiate soccer coaching ranks. Ryan is very well respected locally with club soccer and is a great first hire by Eric.


Bell, who will be just the third women's soccer coach in TCU history, has subsequently announced that Ryan Higginbotham will be an assistant coach with the Horned Frogs. Higginbotham, from the Dallas Texans, is a National Youth Girls Coach of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.


I'm thrilled to be the new coach at TCU,” Bell said. “I would like to thank Chris Del Conte and the rest of the search committee for affording me this wonderful opportunity. I believe everything is in place to take TCU to the next level of women’s intercollegiate soccer. I am very excited and can’t wait to get started.”
