COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri football coach Barry Odom will make $2.35 million annually in a five-year contract approved Friday by the Missouri System Board of Curators.

The contract includes $450,000 in base salary and $1.9 million for various appearances on radio and TV and other duties. It also provides performances bonuses of $250,000 for winning an SEC championship and $250,000 for reaching a New Year's Day bowl game once each during the contract term.

He replaced Gary Pinkel, who resigned because of health issues.

Odom also gets a country club membership, use of two university vehicles and reimbursement for spousal travel.

Odom would owe a buyout of $2.35 million if he accepted another college or NFL position on or before Feb. 28, 2019, with decreasing buyout terms in subsequent seasons.
