Mountain View football coach Kellogg dies at 58

Mountain View football coach Rob Kellogg died Tuesday afternoon, the school announced early Wednesday through Twitter. Kellogg was 58.

 

Kellogg had been Mountain View’s head coach the past two seasons and led the Bears to the playoffs both years out of Region 7-AAAAAAA. He joined Mountain View’s staff in 2015 and was promoted in 2018 from offensive coordinator.

Kellogg suffered from diabetes and was unable to coach during the early part of 2019 because of an infection from stepping on a nail last summer, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post, the first media to report the news. Kellogg was hospitalized much of this year because of complications of that infection.

Kellogg was a head coach for 15 seasons in the Georgia Independent School Association, where he compiled a 77-73 record and won region titles at Thomas Jefferson Academy, Flint River Academy and Fullington Academy in central Georgia. He was an assistant at North Hall and Gilmer in the GHSA before joining Mountain View’s staff.

Kellogg, from Statesboro, was an alumnus of Georgia Southern.
