The Missouri Tigers have hired former USC defensive line coach Chris Wilson to take the same position under new coach Barry Odom, according to Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans.

Wilson joined USC’s staff in January 2014 after coaching the defensive line at Oklahoma, Colorado, Mississippi State and Georgia. He coached Jets defensive end Leonard Williams, who was the sixth overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.

The 46-year-old has 22 years of coaching experience. He played college ball for Oklahoma from 1988–91.
