New Missouri coach Barry Odom has added another key piece to his staff.
Rohrk Cutchlow has been named Missouri’s director of athletic performance, the university announced on Thursday.
Cutchlow will oversee the Tigers’ strength and conditioning program, and will assume the role sometime in January.
Cutchlow boasts 17 years of experience, including stints at Memphis, where he helped to develop the program the past 12 years.
“I’m very excited to have Rohrk be part of our program at Mizzou,” Odom said. “He’s a guy who is highly sought after and has had several other opportunities. He made a big impression on me in my time at Memphis, so our relationship goes back through a rebuilding project there that allowed his influence to make a huge difference in our program. He’s very well-respected nationally, and he instills great toughness and leadership with his teams.
“Rohrk will be a great asset to our coaching staff, in the way that he touches our players every day, as well as the results he will get. He will be very challenging and demanding of our players, but they will respond and appreciate his approach and his ability to get them into the best physical and mental condition that they can be.”
