The creator of the Dribble Drive is leaving UMass.

Vance Walberg, who was brought on by Derek Kellogg shortly after he got the job three years ago, will be leaving the staff.

At least that's the case, according to Matt Vatour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette. 

Kellogg told CBSSports.com a couple weeks ago that he was going to cut down on the amount of the Dribble Drive this season - and that may have played into the decision.

Walberg was the head coach at Clovis West, Fresno City College and also had a brief stint as the head coach at Pepperdine, where he was 14-35 in two years.

His offense became renowned largely due to the success of John Calipari - who implemented it while at Memphis.

The drible drive doesnt really work unless you have NBA players playing against college players.

Walberg &  Kellogs records show that.

Give Calipari equal talent and it wouldnt work for him either.
