UNLV has reportedly found its next football head coach.
Odom went 25-25 in four seasons as Missouri's head coach before joining the Razorbacks in 2020. He'd replace Marcus Arroyo, who got fired after UNLV improved to 5-7 in his third season.
Some college football fans like the hire and think Arkansas will miss Odom.
However, others got their hopes up after Ed Oregon circulated as a candidate for the vacancy Monday. The former LSU coach denied any involvement with the open position.
Arkansas' defense made strides in 2021, allowing 22.9 points per game in a 9-4 season. However, the Razorbacks went 6-6 while ceding 28.8 points per game in 2022.
Odom, who was also a defensive coordinator at Memphis and Missouri, will reportedly take over a UNLV program that hasn't posted a winning season since 2013. The Rebels have played one bowl game in the last decade.
