  • LIU Brooklyn to Introduce Derek Kellogg As Next Head Coach

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    LIU Brooklyn will introduce former UMass head coach Derek Kellogg as their new basketball coach during an 11 a.m. press conference on Tuesday, sources tell ZAGSBLOG.

    The school announced the press conference Monday night after ZAGSBLOG earlier reported the Kellogg hire.

    Kellogg landed the job as UMass head coach in 2008 after Travis Ford left to coach Oklahoma State. While coaching the Minutemen, Kellogg registered a 155-137 record in nine seasons. His best season took place in 2013-14 when Kellogg led UMass to a 24-9 record and a bid to the NCAA Tournament.

    After two straight losing seasons, and no postseason play since 2013-14, Kellogg was let go by UMass on March 9.

    The coaching change for LIU Brooklyn comes after the Blackbirds decided to not renew Jack Perri’s contract despite winning 20 games and finishing second in the Northeast Conference.

    LIU Brooklyn has just six NCAA Tournament appearances in program history, their last coming in 2013.
