The Missouri Tigers will reportedly hire Jackie Shipp from Arizona State to coach their defensive line.
The Missouri football team has reportedly found its new defensive line coach.
Jackie Shipp, who has been the defensive line coach at Arizona State for the past three seasons, will join Barry Odom’s staff at Missouri, news that was first reported by Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.
Shipp replaces Chris Wilson, who left Mizzou after a month on the job to become the defensive line coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Shipp, 53, played linebacker at the University of Oklahoma and was a first-round pick in 1984 by the Miami Dolphins. He spent five seasons with the Dolphins and one year with the Los Angeles Raiders.
The Oklahoma native’s coaching career has included many stops, including Central Missouri State, Tennessee-Martin, Southern Illinois and the University of Alabama.
Shipp’s most notable coaching stint was 14 seasons coaching the defensive line for his alma mater, Oklahoma, where he mentored All-American defensive tackles Gerald McCoy and Tommie Harris.
