Missouri set to hire Eliah Drinkwitz as football coach, reports say

Could Appalachian State coach Eli Drinkwitz be the right match for Missouri

Missouri has reached an agreement with Eliah Drinkwitz to take over the Tigers' once-proud football program, a person familiar with the hiring tells The Associated Press.

He has only one season of head coaching experience, this past season at Appalachian State.

He'll be getting a major pay raise to come to Mizzou, where he's reportedly set to earn in the neighborhood of $4 million annually, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune. All of Odom's assistant coaches are still under contract with Missouri; any not retained by Drinkwitz would get their own buyouts from the school. The Missouri System Board of Curators will meet at 8 a.m. Tuesday to formally approve a seven-figure contract for Drinkwitz. Taking over for Scott Satterfield at Appalachian State, Drinkwitz went 12-1 and has the Mountaineers ranked No. 20 in the final College Football Playoff rankings.

Drinkwitz, 36, is from Norman, Okla., and coached at Springdale (Ark.) High School in 2004, the year after Gus Malzahn left to become Arkansas' offensive coordinator. From there, he moved to Boise State, where he spent a year as the tight ends coach and another as the offensive coordinator.

However, in the meantime, developers are focusing on the release of MLB The Show 20 , which is set to launch on March 17, 2020. A Sony exclusive right now is its MLB The Show baseball simulation series, which has wowed PlayStation owners for many years.

Clark, a Mountaineer graduate who has been offensive line coach the past four seasons, will guide App State in its December 21 New Orleans Bowl appearance against UAB.

Drinkwitz's previous salary at Appalachian State paid him $750,000. Odom had no head-coaching experience prior to Mizzou.

Missouri fired Barry Odom on December 1 after four seasons as head coach.

Drinkwitz's staff at Appalachian State included former Missouri wide receivers coach Pat Washington, who coached the same position in Boone, and running backs coach Garrett Riley, brother of Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley.
