Clark Kellogg leaving Pacers after 32 years

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Clark Kellogg is leaving the Indianapolis Pacers after being with the team 32 years as a player, broadcaster and most recently as vice president for player relations.

Kellogg was the first-round draft pick by the Pacers out of Ohio State in 1982 and he played five seasons before he was forced to retire because of a knee injury. He then worked as a radio and TV analyst for the Pacers until being named vice president for player relations in 2010.

The team issued a release Tuesday with Kellogg saying it was time to move on, saying he did so with no regrets. He said he plans to continue his work as a college basketball analyst and commentator for CBS Sports.

Pacers President Larry Bird said Kellogg will be missed.
