Sam Pittman revealed on a media teleconference that defensive coordinator Barry Odom was with him on Sunday recruiting in Texas, and that the Arkansas coach expects his coordinators to coach in the Liberty Bowl.

Odom was reportedly a top candidate at Tulsa in recent days, but reports suggest that Odom is no longer in the mix. Jonathan Huskey, who is a sports anchor/reporter at the CBS affiliate in Tulsa, Oklahoma reported: “I’m told Barry Odom and the school could not come to an agreement on contract terms. He had been the favorite this morning, now appears to be out.”

Odom reportedly interviewed for the job last week, and it could have been a reunion of sorts since Odom played high school football in Oklahoma before he was a linebacker at Missouri.
