COLUMBIA - Missouri Football signed 20 new student-athletes Wednesday, marking the first recruiting class for new head coach Barry Odom.

Four of the signees are junior college transfers and wide receiver Chris Black comes to Mizzou as a graduate transfer from the University of Alabama. Black will have one year of eligibility remaining and had 25 career catches for 290 yards during his time at Alabama.

A complete list of the 2016 recruiting class is located at the bottom of this story.

Odom also introduced his coaching staff at the National Signing Day press conference, including the latest addition to the coaching staff, Jackie Shipp who signed on as defensive line coach earlier Wednesday.

"I'm really pleased with our coaching staff and what they were able to accomplish in a very short amount of time after coming together," Odom said. "To see their energy on the road and in the homes, in the schools and their relentlessness as they attacked recruiting, it was a great effort."

Missouri Football completes coaching staff http://www.komu.com/news/missouri-football-completes-coaching-staff/ http://www.komu.com/news/missouri-football-completes-coaching-staff/ Football Wed, 3 Feb 2016 4:03:55 PM Reese Johnson, KOMU 8 Sports Digital Producer Missouri Football completes coaching staff

COLUMBIA - Missouri Football filled the last opening of head coach Barry Odom's first staff Wednesday, hiring former Arizona State defensive line coach Jackie Shipp to the same position.

Shipp, 53, comes to Mizzou with 25 years of previous coaching experience including stops one season at Alabama (1998), 14 seasons at his alma mater Oklahoma (1999-2012) and most recently three seasons at Arizona State (2013-15). The teams made bowl game apperances in all 18 of those seasons, including four National Championship games at Oklahoma.

During his playing career at Oklahoma, Shipp set the program record for tackles in a game (22) and tackles in a season (189) which both still stand. He was drafted 14th overall by the Miami Dolphins in the 1984 NFL Draft, playing in 74 career NFL games over a six-year career.

The hiring of Shipp comes one week after former MU defensive line coach Chris Wilson left the program to take a job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

COLUMBIA – Mizzou football announced former University of Alabama wide receiver Chris Black will transfer to the program with immediate eligibility.

Black ended his career with the Crimson Tide with 25 catches for 290 yards and two touchdowns. Most of his Alabama career involved the four-star prospect playing behind the likes of Amari Cooper, Christion Jones and DeAndrew White, all of whom are playing in the NFL.

Coming out of high school in Jacksonville, Florida, Black was ranked among the top-50 players nationally.

Already a graduate of Alabama, Black will continue his studies as a post-graduate, fifth-year senior at MU. He has one year of football eligibility remaining.

Black and junior college transfer Dominic Collins, who announced his decision to join the Tigers last week, are among the most experienced receivers on the team.

Juniors Nate Brown and J’Mon Moore are the only other upperclassmen who are part of the Tigers’ receiving core.

KANSAS CITY (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has signed a $46 million, five-year extension that includes $20.5 million guaranteed.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the Chiefs did not disclose the terms of the contract in announcing the extension.

Kelce, a former third-round draft pick of the Chiefs, was entering the final year of his rookie contract. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end has started 27 of the 33 games he's played over three seasons, catching 139 passes for 1,737 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He missed the majority of the 2013 season after undergoing knee surgery.

ST. CHARLES (AP) — New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson will avoid jail time after pleading guilty to reduced charges connected to a high-speed police chase in suburban St. Louis.

A St. Charles County judge sentenced the former University of Missouri star Tuesday to two years of probation and community service after his July arrest for driving a Bentley Silver Spur at 143 mph on an interstate highway near his offseason home. The five misdemeanor charges included one for resisting arrest.

Richardson's guilty plea to the most serious offense will be expunged if he successfully completes probation.

He served a four-game, early season suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. His defense attorney said he doesn't expect Richardson to face more NFL discipline related to the Missouri case.

COLUMBIA - University of Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk has been suspended indefinitely from Missouri football, according to a joint statement from MU Athletic Director Mac Rhoades and Head Coach Barry Odom.

The statement read:

"We are currently gathering information regarding the video in question. This is an issue we take very seriously and one that will not be tolerated within our program. We will take the appropriate action once we have all the facts. In the interim, Maty Mauk has been indefinitely suspended from the Mizzou football program."

MU did not explain what video the statement is referencing. However, several media outlets, including the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, link the statement to a nine-second video on Twitter of someone who looks like Mauk snorting a white substance.

A Twitter user sent a video matching that description to KOMU 8 News; however, the station cannot verify the authenticity of the video or who is pictured.

Missouri suspended Mauk twice during the 2015 season for disciplinary reasons.

Both assistants have lengthy histories with Chiefs coach Andy Reid.

Childress spent seven seasons with him in Philadelphia, coaching quarterbacks for three years and the final four as offensive coordinator. Nagy was an offensive quality control coach in Philadelphia and followed Reid to Kansas City prior to the 2013 season.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A second lawsuit has been filed over the Rams' move to Los Angeles, this time by holders of personal seat licenses who say they should retain their right to seat licenses and season tickets in California.

The suit was filed last week in St. Louis County. Messages seeking comment from the Rams were not returned.

The suit alleges that the PSL agreement is valid through 2025, but does not stipulate where the games are played. It seeks class-action status for more than 30,000 other PSL holders who retained their licenses through the 2015 season.

Another lawsuit accuses Rams owner Stan Kroenke and chief operating officer Kevin Demoff of deceiving fans by claiming the team had no intention of leaving St. Louis, violating Missouri's Merchandising Practices Act.

COLUMBIA (AP) — Former University of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel will remain at the university as a fundraiser and ambassador, earning nearly $1 million over the length of a three-year contract.

The university announced the contract Thursday. It calls for Pinkel to earn $350,000 in both 2016 and 2017, and $250,000 in 2018.

Pinkel announced his retirement in November. He was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the spring but kept the diagnosis quiet until his retirement announcement. Pinkel, who is 63, led Missouri to a 118-73 record and 10 bowl appearances in 15 seasons.

The university says his new role will include assisting with fundraising and "donor/fan engagement," along with serving as an adviser and an ambassador for the university at public appearances.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis aldermen have agreed to spend $150 million to help finance a new riverfront football stadium as part of the effort to keep the Rams from moving.

Aldermen voted 17-10 to approve the measure Friday. The vote does not guarantee that owner Stan Kroenke will keep the team in St. Louis, but was considered vital toward the effort to build the new $1 billion stadium that could entice NFL owners against allowing the Rams to move.

The Rams and two other teams are seeking to move to Los Angeles. League owners meet next month to consider the issue.

In a statement, the St. Louis stadium task force called the approval "a significant milestone." But some opponents at the meeting booed. One shouted, "Shame on you" at aldermen.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — New Missouri coach Barry Odom has hired DeMontie Cross, a former teammate at the school, as his defensive coordinator.

The move comes a day after Josh Heupel was hired as offensive coordinator.

Cross has been linebackers coach at TCU the last three seasons and last year also served as co-defensive coordinator. The 11th-ranked Horned Frogs are 10-2 and will play No. 15 Oregon Jan. 2 in the Alamo Bowl, and Cross will join Missouri after that game.

Cross, who is from St. Louis, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant/outside linebackers coach at Missouri for Larry Smith in 1998-99. He was an NFL defensive assistant coach for five years from 2006-10 with the Buffalo Bills.

Odom and Cross were teammates in 1996 at Missouri.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tavon Austin scored twice, Todd Gurley topped 1,000 yards rushing and the Rams beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23 on Thursday night in what could be the franchise's final game in St. Louis.

The 31st-ranked offense had an inspired effort in front of another half-filled but spirited Edward Jones Dome crowd, rolling to a 21-3 halftime lead behind two touchdown passes by Case Keenum.

Fans chanted "Keep Our Rams! Keep Our Rams!" and carried signs, one of them reading "We Don't Need Kroenke, We Just Want our Rams."

Owner Stan Kroenke, who wants to move the Rams (6-8) to Los Angeles, attended the finale but kept a low profile.

Jameis Winston threw two touchdown passes in a big fourth quarter and finished with a career-best 363 yards passing for Tampa Bay (6-8).

JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — A Missouri lawmaker has withdrawn a bill that sought to strip scholarships from college athletes who go on strike or refuse to play for reasons unrelated to health.

Republican state Rep. Rick Brattin dropped the 5-day-old legislation Wednesday. He says he introduced the measure last Friday merely to entice dialogue about what he considers "an extremely important topic."

Brattin's proposed the measure in response to last month's threat by University of Missouri football players to not play due to the administration's handling of racial discrimination complaints at its main campus.

The players' participation helped force changes at the school, including the resignations of the university system's president and Columbia campus' chancellor.

Trumaine Johnson's 58-yard interception return for St. Louis (5-8) was the only score in the first half, plus he did most of the work holding Calvin Johnson to a late 16-yard catch. Aaron Donald had three sacks of Matthew Stafford to further boost a defense that had sagged in recent weeks.

Golden Tate caught two touchdown passes for Detroit (4-9), which didn't have much to show for extra days off to regroup from a game-ending TD pass by the Packers on Dec. 3.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs kept the San Diego Chargers out of the end zone twice in the final seconds Sunday, preserving a 10-3 victory and their seventh consecutive win.

Alex Smith threw for 191 yards and a touchdown, along with his first interception after a franchise-record 312 attempts. But it was a banged-up defense that held San Diego without a touchdown for the second time this season that allowed the Chiefs (8-5) to escape.

The Chargers (3-10) took over at their own 11 with 5 minutes left and quickly moved into Kansas City territory, converting fourth down three times. But after San Diego was called for delay of game at the Chiefs 1 with 5 seconds left, Philip Rivers threw incomplete into the end zone.

San Diego still had 2 seconds left, and an incomplete pass that would have ended the game was blown dead for a false start. With the ball pushed back to the 11-yard line, Rivers scrambled to his right and threw to the end zone, where his pass final pass fell incomplete.

The Chiefs spilled onto the field to celebrate another big win in their playoff chase.

KANSAS CITY (AP) — The Chiefs have placed offensive guard Ben Grubbs on injured reserve with a neck injury and brought in back backup center Daniel Munyer to help with their ailing offensive line.

The Chiefs announced the moves before Wednesday's practice.

Grubbs, a two-time Pro Bowl selection with New Orleans, was acquired by Kansas City prior to this season. He started seven games before the neck problem cropped up, and the Chiefs were hopeful that he would be able to return to the field this season.

In other injury news, outside linebacker Justin Houston is day to day with a hyperextended left knee. Offensive lineman Jeff Allen has an ankle injury, while center Mitch Morse and wide receiver De'Anthony Thomas are undergoing concussion testing.
