COACH AND PROGRAM

When Massachusetts coach Derek Kellogg took over two years ago, he knew that returning the Minutemen to the perch they occupied when he was a player, in the 1990s, was going to take time. Because of that, Kellogg measures his team's short-term progress not in terms of wins and losses, but rather what it learned last year that it can carry over into this season.
