Former Indiana Pacers player, broadcaster and current team executive Clark Kellogg has announced that he is leaving the Pacers, effective immediately.
Kellogg, a Big Ten MVP at Ohio State University who was the Pacers' First Round draft choice in 1982, is departing from his current post as Vice President of Player Relations. After injuries cut his playing career short, Kellogg served as a radio and TV analyst for the Pacers while also blossoming into an analyst and commentator for CBS Sports, focusing on college basketball, the NCAA men's basketball tournament and the Final Four.
"Since 1982, I've enjoyed some form of a working relationship with the Indiana Pacers: player, radio and TV broadcaster, and VP of Player Relations," Kellogg said. "I'm eternally thankful for each opportunity the Simon family and this organization have given me to contribute to its work. It's been a blessed association in every way for me and my family. "But times and seasons change. And my time has come to move on from my role as VP of Player Relations. I do so with no regrets, while looking forward to continuing my work as a college basketball game and studio analyst with CBS. Always a Pacer."
"We are glad we had the opportunity to have Clark as part of our team," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. "His interaction with our players was great and he brought a lot to the table. Anyone who has been around Clark will say you can't find a better person. We will miss him and wish him the best."
Added PS&E President Jim Morris, "Clark has long represented this franchise with the utmost in class, dignity and character. He will always be a member of our PS&E family and we hope his CBS duties continue to bring him to Indianapolis often."
Kellogg has split time between his home in Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis during his tenure. He and wife Rosy have three children, Talisa, Alex and Nicholas. Talisa will be married this Saturday.
