Chipola men's head basketball coach resigns

MARIANNA, FL (WJHG/WECP) The Chipola men's basketball program is going through a change in head coaches.

School officials have confirmed to NewsChannel 7 that head coach Bret Campbell has turned in his resignation. An email was sent Tuesday night saying there will be a press conference at the school at 1:30 during which college officials will make an announcement about the coaching job.

Campbell's tenure spanned three years on the bench with the Indians, compiling a record of 61-29 overall, 18-18 in conference play.

Last season, the Indians went 22-8 (8-4), making it all the way to the state title game, where they lost to Northwest Florida.

It is not known at this time if coach Campbell is leaving to take another job, perhaps back in Tennessee. He was a head coach at Tennessee Martin for 10 years, and later, an assistant coach at Austin Peay, the job he left to come south to take over the Chipola men's program.
