Tritia Odom is the football coach wife of Barry Odom. Her 39-year-old husband is currently the head football coach of the Missouri Tigers football team.
The Missouri coach has been left without a boss after former AD Mack Rhoades –who hired Odom –accepted a job at Baylor.
Odom was born Nov. 26, 1976 in Lawton, Okla., he played under former Coach Larry Smith, and starred as a linebacker from 1996-99. He ended his playing career with 362 tackles, which still ranks as seventh-most in school history. Odom was a captain for his senior year of 1999, and was a key figure on the Missouri teams which reached bowl games in 1997 and 1998, ending a 14-year postseason drought for Tiger fans.
Success followed Odom’s career path at each future stop after his playing days. After earning his undergraduate degree in December of 1999, he served as an intern with Mizzou’s Tiger Scholarship Fund while he worked on his Master’s in Education from the University of Missouri (which he would earn in May of 2004). He returned to his home state of Oklahoma in July of that year to serve as an assistant football coach for his alma mater Ada High School, which finished that season as runners-up for a state title.
Odom was quickly back in his adopted hometown of Columbia, Mo., the next spring, as he took over as head coach at Rock Bridge High School. Running a college program became a focal point next, and Odom began that path by joining the Mizzou staff, first as an administrative graduate assistant for Gary Pinkel in 2003. He spent the 2004 and 2005 seasons as Pinkel’s director of recruiting as the staff assembled a core group which would help lead Mizzou to consecutive Big 12 Conference North Division titles in 2007 and 2008 which consisted of 12-win and 10-win seasons, respectively.
From 2006-08, Odom helped run Pinkel’s program administratively as his director of operations.
After being named head coach in 2015, he spent the past four seasons as a defensive coordinator, including three at Memphis (2012-14) and one at Missouri, where his units were considered among the best in the nation.
Odom has had a successful career, and behind him, had been his supportive wife, Tritian Odom.
