COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann has announced the addition of Nick Kellogg to the men’s basketball staff. Kellogg will serve as assistant to the head coach/director of scouting.
The Central Ohio native was the video coordinator for the Milwaukee Bucks the last two seasons and played a role in the team’s NBA title in 2020-21.
“We are excited about the addition of Nick to our coaching staff,” said Holtmann. “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, who went to high school at nearby Columbus DeSales, was a four-year letterwinner and starter at Ohio University from 2011-14. He played in 143 career games for the Bobcats, which is tied for the most in program history. He scored 1,449 career points and his 290 career three-pointers are second-most by any player in the history of the program. Kellogg led the Bobcats to postseason play in all four of his seasons, including a run to the Sweet 16 in the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
Holtmann was an assistant coach at Ohio University for two seasons in 2008-09 and 2009-10 and was part of the staff that recruited Kellogg to Athens.
“Coach Holtmann and I go back to his recruiting days at Ohio University, and I’m thrilled to be reunited and working with him,” said Kellogg. “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.”
After his collegiate days, Kellogg played professionally overseas before joining the Bucks staff prior to their championship season in 2020-21. Nick is the son of Ohio State legend and hall of famer Clark Kellogg.
