Missouri has fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross.
After an ugly loss to South Carolina in its SEC opener, the Missouri Tigers are already making a change. Defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross is out.
Cross, who was named to the position in 2016 by head coach Barry Odom, last just over a season in the role.
Missouri’s defense struggled in week one – giving up 492 yards and 43 points to Missouri State. A 31-13 loss to South Carolina didn’t help matters.
It took a week for Missouri to take me up on my suggestion, but the Tigers have fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross.
