LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV hired former Missouri football coach Barry Odom on Tuesday for the same position.
He coached the Tigers from 2016-19, going 25-25 with two bowl appearances.
Odom was Arkansas' defensive coordinator and associate head coach the past three seasons.
"I'm honored and excited to begin developing a relationship with our student-athletes and provide them a great foundation for success in every area of their lives," Odom said in a statement.
UNLV will formally introduce Odom at a news conference Wednesday morning.
Odom replaces Marcus Arroyo, who was fired after going 5-7 this season and 7-23 over three years.
