AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -University of Massachusetts officials plan to announce a new basketball coach on Wednesday, but would not address reports it will be Memphis assistant Derek Kellogg.
Several media outlets have reported that Kellogg will be named to the spot vacated by Travis Ford, who left to take over at Oklahoma State.
Kellogg, 34, played at UMass from 1991-1995 and was an All-Atlantic 10 player. He has been an assistant coach at Memphis for eight years, and previously was at Youngstown State and George Mason.
UMass athletics spokesman Jason Yellin said a new coach will be announced Wednesday, but would not confirm or deny the reports about Kellogg.
