Kellogg steps down from executive post with Pacers

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.

  • Thank YOU, Mr. K.
    I was a Purdue student during Clark's time at Ohio State and I lived in Michigan during his tenure as a Pacers player, but having since met him in person and watched him as an analyst, I have nothing but high esteem and great respect for Mr. Kellogg.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
