Missouri has fired football coach Barry Odom after four seasons, according to reports Saturday.
Odom finishes his Tigers tenure with a 25-25 win-loss record, helping Missouri to bowl appearances in 2017 and 2018.
Odom was hired in 2015 following Gary Pinkel’s retirement after 15 years due to health issues. Originally joining the staff in 2003 as a graduate assistant, Odom was elevated to safeties coach in 2009 and then defensive coordinator in 2012.
It was announced last week that Missouri’s appeal for its postseason ban was denied by the NCAA after it was discovered in January that a tutor helped Missouri football, baseball and softball players complete their coursework.
The Tigers started the season 5-1 but had lost five consecutive games by an average of 15.4 points before defeating Arkansas 24-14 on Friday.
