AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -Derek Kellogg, who played on four Atlantic 10 championship teams at Massachusetts in the 1990s, was formally introduced as his alma mater's head coach on Wednesday.
Kellogg, who had been an assistant coach at Memphis for the last eight years, attended a news conference and pep rally, where he was greeted by several hundred fans.
He replaced Travis Ford, who was hired at Oklahoma State this month after three years at UMass that featured two NIT appearances.
Athletic director John McCutcheon said Kellogg would receive a six-year contract but terms have not been finalized.
Kellogg, a native of nearby Springfield, played at UMass under John Calipari, the current Memphis coach. The Tigers lost to Kansas in the national championship game.
