The English native, who has been in Germany since 1982, was announced as Republic of Ireland Women’s National Team Head Coach on February 8, 2017. Bell arrived from SC Sand in the Frauen Bundesliga.

Following a playing career with FSV Mainz 05, Bell moved into coaching where he has worked in both the men's and women's game over the last three decades, learning from the likes of current Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp and enjoying a lot of success.

In 2015, Bell guided FFC Frankfurt to glory in the UEFA Women's Champions League - having previously won the DFB-Pokal der Frauen (German Women's Cup) and brought the club back into the Champions League, as well as spending time at Bad Neuenahr - before moving on to Avaldsnes IL in Norway and back to Germany with SC Sand.
