Clark Clifton Kellogg, Jr. (born July 2, 1961) is the VP of player relations for the Indiana Pacers as well as the lead college basketball analyst for CBS Sports and former player in the National Basketball Association.
Clark 'Special K' Kellogg grew up in East Cleveland, Ohio, attended Chambers Elementary, W.H. Kirk Middle School (both in East Cleveland), and St. Joseph's High School in Cleveland, Ohio and had a high school basketball career generally regarded as the finest in Cleveland history. Mr. Ohio Basketball in 1979, the highlight was a 79-65 loss in the state championship game to Columbus East that saw Kellogg score 51 points and 24 rebounds. This 51 point game is still an Ohio state finals record. Kellogg also played in the McDonald's and Capital Classic games.
From 1979–82, Kellogg played for Ohio State University, where he earned All-Big Ten Conference and Most Valuable Player honors; in 1996, he received his marketing degree. In June 2010, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland appointed Kellogg to the university's board of trustees, where he sits today.
In 1982, Kellogg was the 1st round draft pick of the Indiana Pacers. In his first season he was selected for the NBA All-Rookie Team. He is one of only a handful of rookies in NBA history to average 20 points and 10 rebounds a game. He was much heralded as the next breakout NBA superstar. Converse signed him to an endorsement deal, to release a "Special K" sneaker. However, he only played three full seasons, and portions of two others, for the Pacers before chronic knee problems forced him to retire. During his three full seasons with the Pacers, the Pacers were a combined 68–178.
Kellogg serves as a color analyst for the Indiana Pacers road games.
From 1993–94, Kellogg served as a game analyst for the CBS Sports coverage of the NCAA Tournament. From 1994–97, he served as a studio co-host for the early round coverage of the NCAA Tournament. In 1997, Kellogg joined CBS Sports full-time as a studio/game analyst for college basketball coverage, and was one of three in-studio hosts for March Madness along with Greg Gumbel and Sports Illustrated's Seth Davis. He would typically work as the #2 game analyst until around Championship Week when he would move into the studio for the remainder of the season. He is known for using the phrase "spurtability" as a reference to a team's ability to score points in quick succession.
Kellogg replaced Billy Packer as CBS lead basketball announcer beginning in the 2008-2009 college basketball season and called the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship with Jim Nantz. He also works games at the beginning of the season with Verne Lundquist when Nantz is on other CBS Sports duties including NFL and golf.
In March 2010, Kellogg played a game of H.O.R.S.E. against U.S. President Barack Obama. The game, called "P.O.T.U.S." for the occasion, was won by Obama, who had P.O.T.U. to Kellogg's P.O.T.U.S. Video of Obama & Kellogg playing basketball.
