SEC interest leads to raises for Arkansas assistants Odom, Davis

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas defensive coordinator Barry Odom and offensive line coach Brad Davis each received $100,000 pay raises after other SEC programs tried to hire them away.

Odom’s raise brought his annual pay to $1.3 million - the highest salary on the Arkansas staff - and Davis’ raise increased his salary to $650,000. Odom’s raise was finalized March 10, and Davis’ was finalized Feb. 3.

The contract adjustments were discovered through an open records request.

During a March 12 speech at Cross Church Pinnacle Hills, Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman said Davis had been offered a job by Texas A&M, where he was once a graduate assistant, and that Odom had been offered a defensive coordinator job by another SEC program, but did not specify which one.
