JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Missouri coach Barry Odom hired his younger brother as outside linebackers coach on Friday in a move the school says doesn't violate state law against nepotism.
The Missouri Constitution bans public employees from hiring family members.
Missouri spokesman Chad Moller told The Associated Press that Brian Odom's direct supervisor will be the athletic director, not his brother. Iowa has a similar arrangement for assistant football coach Brian Ferentz, who reports to the athletic director and not his father, coach Kirk Ferentz.
