Early Life And Education

Barry Odom & Wife, Tritia Odom

Born on 26 November 1976, Tritia Odom, previously Tritia Trump, was conceived in Lawton, Oklahoma, although she grew up in Kahoka, Missouri where she participated in every activity possible from cheerleading for the football team to starring on the basketball team to running tracks.

She is the youngest of four siblings and graduated from the University of Missouri’s College of Human Environmental Sciences, where she also volunteered for the “Wine & Art Auction,” which benefited RAINN, a charity dedicated to raising awareness and preventing sexual violence.

How did Barry Odom and Tritia Odom first meet?

Details about the specifics of how Barry and Tritia Odom first met are not publicly available. However, Barry and Tia both graduated from the University of Missouri, which is highly likely where they met.

Barry served as team captain in his senior year for the Tigers, helping them reach bowl games in 1997 and 1998, which suggests that they likely met during that period.


Tritia and Barry Odom got engaged in late 1999 before finally tying the knot in justly 2000. They weren’t financially stable at the time. Barry was only an assistant coach at Ada High School in Oklahoma and then went on to become the head coach of Rock Bridge High School in Missouri.

At the same time, Tia was looking to put her degree to use by searching for teaching opportunities in the school district they lived in.

How Many Kids Do Barry And Tritia Odom Have Together?

Not much information is available about their kids publicly besides that Garyt plays the quarterback position for the Shiloh Christian High School’s football team.


Barry Odom may have a long history with UNLV compared to the University of Missouri as he was only hired as their head football coach in December of 2022.

However, despite his short tenure, he’s already made a significant impact by leading the Rebels to their first appearance in the Mountain West Conference championship game in December 2023.
