Arkansas football has extended the contracts of offensive coordinator Kendal Briles and defensive coordinator Barry Odom through the 2024 season, according to multiple reports.

Briles and Odom joined coach Sam Pittman's first staff at Arkansas in 2020. The two helped the Razorbacks to a 9-4 record last season and a No. 20 ranking in the final USA TODAY AFCA Coaches Poll. Both were reportedly targets of other schools during the coaching carousel after last season.

Briles will make $1.25 million, an increase from $1 million, in 2022, while Odom will make $1.85 million, an increase of $100,000, according to the report.
