Missouri reportedly will make director of recruiting A.J. Ofodile the program’s 10th assistant.
On Monday, Power Mizzou’s Gabe DeArmond reported that Ofodile will be hired for the role and that an announcement from Missouri is expected as soon as later in the day.
Ofodile has deep Tigers ties. He was a tight end for the program during a career that included an all-Big Eight season as a senior in 1993. He also enjoyed a six-year NFL career that included stops with the Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Odom hired Ofodile in spring 2016.
Missouri finished the most recent season with a 7-6 record, capped by a loss to Texas in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27. College football programs are allowed to hire a 10th on-field assistant starting this year.
