Andy Hill and A.J. Ofodile will both be back on Missouri’s staff for the 2018 season, and on Tuesday, their roles with the Tigers for this fall were confirmed.
Hill will be the program’s first-ever special teams coordinator, while Ofodile will coach the wide receivers. The report was confirmed by Daniel Jones of the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Hill has coached wide receivers at Mizzou for 19 of the past 22 seasons. He has been an associate head coach since 2013, which is a role he’ll continue to have in addition to his special teams duties. He has been on the Tigers’ staff since 1996.
Not only has Hill coached at Missouri for the past two decades, but he also played there as a wide receiver from 1980-84.
Ofodile had been Missouri’s director of recruiting operations for the past two seasons. He was promoted to the Tigers’ 10th assistant spot earlier this month, shifting him to an on-field position. He is a Mizzou alum who played tight end for the Tigers from 1991-93.
These are key roles that have now been confirmed for head coach Barry Odom’s staff.
