A Favorite Son Returns Home

UMass basketball has a new coach and its a big hit in Western Massachusetts. Derek Kellogg, alumni of the program is back from being an assistant under John Calipari at Memphis and takes over the program from Travis Ford. Derek is on my Espo List so I am pleased he has returned but I am cautious about it as well. An alum coming back from the glory days, who was a popular player and from the surrounding area, there is going to be a ton of pressure and expectations on him. I will be rooting hard for him and I fully intend on keeping my season tickets.  If you go to my link for the UMass Sports Blog, you will get some local coverage on the hire.
