Video: Watch Missouri players mob new head coach Barry Odom in excitement


Last night, Missouri announced that defensive coordinator Barry Odom had been chosen as the new head coach of the Tiger program.

Athletic director Mack Rhoades decided to surprise the team during a team meeting with the decision, and the players went nuts, swarming Odom in excitement before starting a "BARRY! BARRY! BARRY!" chant of support.

Their reaction shows all you need to know about what the Missouri campus community thinks of Odom as a coach, and person.
