Derek Kellogg (born on June 20, 1973) is an American college basketball coach and the current 21st head coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Massachusetts.[1] He was named to the position on April 23, 2008, replacing Travis Ford, who left to take the head coaching job at Oklahoma State University.


Early years

Kellogg attended Cathedral High School in Springfield and the University of Massachusetts for college.[1] He was a point guard for the UMass Minutemen from 1991 to 1995. As a player, Kellogg played on four Atlantic 10 Conference regular season and tournament championship teams. During that span, the Minutemen were just the second team in NCAA history to win four straight outright season and tournament championships. Coached by John Calipari, UMass was 111–24 during Kellogg's career there. He was named captain in both his junior and senior years.

Coaching career

Kellogg began his coaching career at George Mason University where he was an assistant for two seasons (1997–99). He then moved to Youngstown State for the 1999–2000 season. From 2000 to 2008, Kellogg was assistant coach of the men's basketball team at the University of Memphis, under Calipari.

In Kellogg's first year as head coach, the UMass Minutemen finished with a 12–18 record. Though disappointing, the season featured wins over three teams that would reach the NCAA Tournament: Kansas, Dayton and Temple. UMass also nearly upset Xavier, who also made the NCAA Tournament.

The 2009–10 season for UMass finished with a 12–20 record. Kellogg's squad, with many first-year players for UMass, had notable wins against Memphis and Rhode Island in the regular season's finale, which arguably knocked the Rams off the NCAA Tournament bubble. The Minutemen also broke an eight game losing streak in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, with a first round win over Charlotte. Six of the Minutemen's opponents would go on to the NCAA Tournament, though UMass went 0–7 in games against those teams.

In the 2010-2011 season Kellogg's Minutemen improved to a 15-15 record with a 7-9 regular season conference record in the Atlantic 10. The team started the season 7-0, but faltered down the stretch ending the season 2-8 in their last 10 games. They did have notable wins in the regular season over RPI top 100 teams Rhode Island twice and Dayton. They earned a home Atlantic 10 tournament game at the Mullins Center for the first time since 2003, but this time lost 78-50 to Dayton. After this loss and a previous loss to Fordham, there was talk that Kellogg should be fired after three seasons. However on March 9, 2011, UMass athletic director John McCutcheon announced that Kellogg would be back for the 2011-2012 season.[2]
