Mizzou Fires Defensive Line Coach

Mizzou Football confirmed Wednesday that it has parted ways with defensive line coach Jackie Shipp.In a statement released by MU, head coach Barry Odom said “Jackie Shipp is no longer coaching for us, due to an internal matter where his conduct didn’t meet our expectations for coaches. We have a very high level of expectation for our student athletes, and for our staff that applies to an even higher level.”

The athletic department didn’t release further details, but PowerMizzou and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch have reported the firing stems from an argument Shipp had with a player before the game at Tennessee Saturday.
