"He is building a championship culture within his program that fosters academic achievement, athletic success and accountability, and I am proud of what he has been able to accomplish during his first three seasons. With this year's success and the South End Zone facility coming on-line next year, I believe Mizzou Football enjoys great momentum heading into the 2019 season and I look forward to working with Coach Odom to build upon that," Sterk said.

Didn't Missouri get better each year since Barry Odom became the head coach? That is what going on right now. Missouri is getting back on track to compete in the SEC.
