On Monday afternoon, West Virginia’s women’s basketball program announced the hiring of new head coach Mark Kellogg. WVU’s Director of Athletics Wren Baker commented on the new hire in a press release by the University.

“Mark Kellogg is an established winner who has made a name for himself by building championship programs and preparing his student-athletes to be leaders on and off the court,” Baker said. “He has had tremendous success at every stop along his coaching career journey and has done so with great integrity.

This is the second time that Baker has hired Kellogg during their careers. Back in 2012, Baker hired Kellogg to become the head coach at Northwest Missouri State. Now, Baker hires Kellogg again.

“What became clear to our search committee was that Mark possesses the work ethic, passion and character traits that will resonate with all West Virginians and the student-athletes in our women’s basketball program. Mark and his wife, Trisha, along with their children Camden and Kayli will make outstanding additions to our community, campus and state,” Baker said.

Kellogg has spent the last eight seasons at Stephen F. Austin, winning 195 games and taking the Lumberjacks to two NCAA Tournament appearances in 2021 and 2022. Kellogg has won an outright Southland Conference title and an outright Western Athletic Conference title.
