Back at the end of November, Missouri announced their decision to let go of head coach Barry Odom after four seasons. Odom went 25-25 leading the program and has since landed as the defensive coordinator at Arkansas for Sam Pittman.

By the early December, Missouri had landed their guy, pulling Eli Drinkwitz from Appalachian State after one season and a 12-1 finish with the Mountaineers.

Just as he did at Appalachian State, Drinkwitz will serve as offensive coordinator, so his staff structure will have a different look to it. A prime example of that is former Washington offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan coaching both quarterbacks and wide receivers. A total of four coaches will work on the offensive side of the ball, with five on defense, and a dedicated special teams coordinator.

Take a look at Drinkwitz’s inaugural staff at Mizzou below. We did a piece a few days back detailing the staff salaries to what they made in their respective roles in 2019.
