Odums capped his ninth season at Southern with a dominating victory over Grambling in this month’s Bayou Classic. He complied a 58-31 overall record at the helm including a 49-15 mark in Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) games with four SWAC West titles and the 2013 league championship.
The Shelby, North Carolina native heads closer to home to attempt to rebuild another HBCU program that has not had a winning season since 2011.
