Missouri hires defensive coordinator Odom to replace Pinkel

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Missouri has promoted defensive coordinator Barry Odom to replace the retiring Gary Pinkel as head coach.

The school said in a release Thursday night that Odom had agreed in principle to a five-year deal that will need to be approved by the school’s board of curators next week.

The 39-year-old Odom will be formally introduced Friday at a news conference.

Pinkel announced last month he had cancer and was retiring after the season. The Tigers finished 5-7.

Odom was an assistant under Pinkel from 2009-11, then did a three-year stint as defensive coordinator at Memphis before returning to Missouri this season as defensive coordinator.
