The son of a Buckeye legend officially joined Chris Holtmann's staff Wednesday.
Nick Kellogg, son of Ohio State Hall of Famer Clark Kellogg, has been hired as assistant to the head coach/director of scouting for the Buckeyes. Kellogg spent the last two years as a video coordinator for the Milwaukee Bucks, which won an NBA title in his first season.
“We are excited about the addition of Nick to our coaching staff,” Holtmann said in a statement. “Nick’s work with the Milwaukee Bucks these past two seasons as well as his college and professional playing experiences will be a great asset to our current and future Buckeyes. Obviously, the Kellogg name is special among so many who have followed Buckeye basketball over the years. We really look forward to Nick’s work and contribution to Buckeye hoops.”

Kellogg played four seasons at Ohio University from 2010-11 through 2013-14 after playing high school basketball at Columbus DeSales. Holtmann was an assistant coach on the Bobcats' staff in 2008-09 and 2009-2010, and thus had a prior connection with Kellogg.
“Coach Holtmann and I go back to his recruiting days at Ohio University, and I’m thrilled to be reunited and working with him,” Kellogg said in a statement. “He’s a tremendous coach and he’s put together a great staff that I’m very much looking forward to learning from. I can’t thank him and his staff enough for the opportunity to take the next steps in my career in my hometown.”
Kellogg also played professionally overseas before joining the Bucks' staff in 2020-21.
