(CANYON, Texas) Just one year into his stay as head women's basketball coach at Northwest Missouri State, Mark Kellogg is reportedly on his way out of Maryville.
KAMR sports reporter Michael Spencer says that sources tell him Kellogg will be the next women's basketball coach at West Texas A&M, and that a formal announcement is coming Thursday morning with a press conference introducing him Monday.
Kellogg, a Dallas native, does have ties to West Texas A&M. He received his master's degree in sports and exercise science from the school in 2000, and served as the assistant men's basketball coach for two seasons.
In his lone season with the Bearcats, Kellogg went 15-13 overall, 8-10 in the MIAA; a dramatic improvement from the 6-22 mark the season prior to his arrival.
Northwest will return eight players in the 2013-14 season that saw significant playing time last year, including leading scorer Maggie Marnin.
Kellogg was originally hired to take over the Bearcat basketball team for Gene Steinmeyer who retired from the position after 13 seasons.
He first came to Northwest Missouri State from Fort Lewis College where he posted a 173-46 record in seven seasons there.
