Mizzou head coach Barry Odom has received a contract extension through 2024 that will see his salary grow to $3.05 million a season.
“Coach Odom has a tremendous passion for teaching and developing our student-athletes, on and off the field, which aligns well with our departmental philosophy to Win it Right,” MU athletic director Jim Sterk said in a release. “With this new contract, we felt it was important to recognize Coach Odom’s commitment to our football program and University, and we look forward to his continued leadership and watching him make a positive difference in the lives of our student-athletes.”
The extension also increases Odom’s incentive package as well by some $1.8 million all told and includes provisions for additional years should he reach specific win totals.
