Missouri coach Barry Odom proved he could coach football over the second half of last season, but his basketball skills leave something to be desired.
Tigers cornerback Adam Sparks tweeted a video late Monday night that shows him absolutely eviscerating coach Odom with a posterizing dunk.
Take a look for yourself:

If you look closely, you can see the moment where Odom considers every decision he’s made in his life up until this point. It also looks like he considers whether or not to take the charge before stepping to the side in favor of self preservation.
As for Sparks, that’s some pretty impressive athleticism (assuming that’s a regulation goal). Mizzou lists him at 6-feet tall, so a lot of the work there had to be done with a good vertical and a lengthy wingspan.
Sparks must be feeling pretty good about his job security to do that to his coach. Sparks played in 11 games last year as a freshman, making 2 interceptions and deflecting 4 passes. He also made 33 tackles on the year.
But Odom did chime in with a hilarious response on Tuesday morning:
Everybody will be asking…didn’t we used to have a player named Sparks, wonder where he is? 👀

In all seriousness, this looks like a very healthy locker room in Missouri. It’s possible that will translate into more wins for the Tigers in 2018.
