Clark Kellogg announces he's leaving Pacers
A former Ohio State standout, Kellogg was selected eighth overall by the Pacers in 1982 and played for the team for five seasons before his NBA career was cut short by injuries. He then became a TV and radio analyst for the team, eventually also serving as an analyst and commentator for CBS Sports with a focus on college basketball.
“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 said in a statement.

“We are glad we had the opportunity to have Clark as part of our team. 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.”
