New Missouri head coach Barry Odom continued to fill out his staff with another addition on Monday.
Glen Elarbee, a former offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator at Arkansas State, will become the next offensive line coach for the Tigers, the school announced. Elarbee helped Arkansas State score 40 points per game (12th nationally) and rush for 231 yards per game (15th nationally) in 2015.
“He’s been around a lot of very successful offenses that from my first-hand experience play with great toughness and attention to detail,” Odom said of Elarbee in the school’s statement. “Glen also has strong recruiting relationships in areas that are important to us – he grew up in Georgia and has recruited there and in the southeast region heavily, as well as in Texas, and that will bring value to our staff. I know Glen is excited to get going here, and we’re excited to have him.”
Said Elarbee: “I’m really grateful for this opportunity. I’ve seen Mizzou firsthand several times at various stops and have always been impressed with the support they have and the environment their fans create. Obviously, I had a chance to go up against Coach Odom several times recently, and I have the utmost respect for what he’s done defensively. Having a chance to work with a guy like him is a no brainer, and I’m excited to get up there and get to work with this staff.”
