Vanderbilt guard Keegan Bell will transfer from the basketball team at the end of the spring semester, Coach Kevin Stallings announced Monday.
"We support that decision 100 percent and we wish him well," Stallings said in a release.
Bell said philosophical differences with Stallings led to his decision to transfer.
"I just didn’t feel this was the right place for me," Bell said. "It’s nothing against the coaches, the players or the university. For me to be the player I need to be, I need to be somewhere else.
"Coach and I just didn’t see eye to eye on certain things. Sometimes players just don’t fit into certain strategies."
Stallings declined to comment further Monday when contacted by The City Paper.
As a freshman, Bell played in every game as a backup point guard during the 2007-08 season and averaged 2.7 points, 1.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
