Barry Odom has added another coach to his growing staff at Missouri.
Odom has tabbed Greg Brown to coach the Tigers’ cornerbacks. Brown comes to Missouri with a long resume of coaching defensive backs in college and the pros. He has also served as defensive coordinator at Arizona and Colorado. Brown has coached 36 years, including the last 10 at Power Five schools and the previous 12 in the NFL.
“Greg’s experience is unmatched around the country, and the success he’s had with the guys he’s coached at every level is so impressive,” Odom said in a release by Missouri. “He always produces very well-coached players who compete at the highest level, and he’s got a tremendous track record of developing guys to play at or above their top level. His experience and leadership will be great assets to add to our staff. I’ve known him for a long time, and he’s recognized as one of the best in the business at what he does. He’ll bring a tremendous amount of knowledge and respect to our program and university,” he said.
Brown comes to Missouri from Louisville, where he coached the secondary and served as recruiting coordinator for the Cardinals.
“I’m really excited to be part of the University of Missouri and to go to work with Barry Odom and the talented staff that he’s putting together,” Brown said in the statement. “I’ve been very impressed with the success he’s had throughout his career, and I can’t wait to get in and help build on the great defense he put together last season. I’ve always been aware of the great tradition at Mizzou, and that dates back a long time. I’ve seen what kind of passion Mizzou’s fans have for their program, and I’m looking forward to being part of that,” he said.
