Barry Stephen Odom (born November 26, 1976) is an American football coach. He is currently the head football coach of the Missouri Tigers football team.

Early career[edit]

Odom played college football at the University of Missouri as a linebacker from 1996 to 1999.[1] After his collegiate career ended, he became a high school football coach, coaching Ada High School in Ada, Oklahoma in 2000 and Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri from 2001 to 2002. In 2003, Odom returned to Missouri as an administrative graduate assistant. He stayed at Missouri until 2012, serving in numerous different coaching and administrative positions.

In 2012, Odom left Missouri to become defensive coordinator of the Memphis Tigers under head coach Justin Fuente. In 2015, Odom again returned to Missouri, this time to serve as defensive coordinator.[2]

Coaching career[edit]

Odom was named the head coach of the Missouri Tigers football team on December 3, 2015,[3] after former head coach Gary Pinkel retired after 15 seasons due to health-related issues.
