Indiana Pacers executive Clark Kellogg is leaving the organization, effective immediately, the team announced Tuesday afternoon in a prepared statement.
Kellogg, 52, who played with Pacers from 1982 to 1987, will depart as vice president of player relations, a post he’s held since 2010.
The team did not provide a reason for his departure. Kellogg said he would continue to work as a college basketball game and studio analyst with CBS Sports.
“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 in the statement. “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.”
Kellogg, a Big Ten Conference MVP from Ohio State University, was drafted by the Pacers in the first round of the 1982 NBA draft. He spent his entire playing career with the Pacers, appearing in 260 games before injuries forced his retirement after five seasons.
“We are glad we had the opportunity to have Clark as part of our team,” Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird said in a prepared statement. “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.”
Kellogg split time between working in Indianapolis and his home in Columbus, Ohio. He and his wife, Rosy, have three children, all in their 20s.
