Hey, it sounded like a good idea.
On Wednesday, Missouri coach Barry Odom served coffee to students in a “#CoffeeWithCoach” event on Mizzou’s campus. It’s a smart approach for Odom, who took over after long-time coach Gary Pinkel stepped away after last season, to build some goodwill on campus and shake a few hands. The more meet-and-greets for the first-year leader, the better.
Now Odom needs to work on mastering the photo opp.
Check out the picture below. Odom doesn’t look super amused. Yes, he’s a coach at heart, and it’s tough to turn off the whistle-blowing persona for a warm-and-fuzzy event like this. And who knows? Perhaps Odom needed a cup or two of java himself to kick-start his day.
Still, the image provides the chance for a little internet fodder.
