Foley Replaces Campbell as Chipola Head Basketball Coach

MARIANNA, Fla. - Bret Campbell has officially stepped down as Head Basketball Coach of the Chipola Indians.

"I do want to thank this community,” Campbell said, “You've been winning here for a long time. You have continued to win for a long time. There's no question about that. Certainly the friendships that have been made here have been extremely great friendships."


But Chipola had his replacement right there in the building.

"When I arrived at Chipola six years ago, it didn't take me long to realize this is a special place” Foley said in his introductory press conference, “It gave me a goal and a vision to help make this day a reality. I'm very thankful for that. Today is a dream come true, and Chipola College is best junior college in the country, and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else in the world. My goals are simple - win more Panhandle Championships, hang more State Championship banners, and win National Championships.”
