(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Of the multiple head coaching vacancies in college football, Louisville is among the most intriguing – and is attracting some very strong candidates. Among them is Missouri HC Barry Odom, who responded to rumors of his interest in the job.On Monday, Odom told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch via text message that he had “zero interest in Louisville.” The position opened up earlier this month when head coach Bobby Petrino was fired.The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Sunday that there was mutual interest between Odom and Louisville.Odom is coming off an eight-win season in his third year at the helm for Missouri. The Tigers finished the season on a four-game winning streak that included a road win over then-No. 13 Florida.The Post-Dispatch noted that despite a solid last two seasons with Missouri, Odom is the lowest-paid coach in the SEC and the eighth lowest paid in all Power 5 schools.Per the report, Odom is under contract through 2022.Louisville finished the season with a 2-10 record, the fourth worst record in school history.last_img read more

first_imgWhen Captain Hugo Webb introduces his co-pilot to passengers over the intercom at the start of their BA flight he leaves out one crucial detail.The First Officer sitting alongside him is his wife Hannah.”Although I introduce Hannah at the beginning of the flight, I have never mentioned she is my wife,” said Mr Webb. “I suppose some customers may guess.”Not that the couple are at all ashamed of their working arrangement. In fact, they say flying together helps them with the ups and downs experienced by every working parent.”It certainly helps that we can discuss and understand each other’s jobs,” said Mr Webb. “We both appreciate the demands of the flying lifestyle.” Hugo and Hannah, who have two young children, say it is "great fun" to fly side by side Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Hugo and Hannah, who have two young children, say it is “great fun” to fly side by sideCredit:Stuart Bailey/British Airways/PA The couple, who yesterday flew together on the London Heathrow to Milan route, are one of a handful of BA pilots married to each other, and because they are both trained to fly the airline’s Airbus A320 they find themselves rostered together every few months.Mr Webb, 32, said: “We are both short-haul pilots and try to get home most nights of the month, although a few nights away can be a nice break from the daily commute.”The couple, from Alresford, Hampshire, both joined BA in 2011 and married the following year. They say being a short-haul pilot is “a great profession to have as a working parent”.Mrs Webb, 34, said: “The shift patterns allow us to see our children both during the week and on the weekends.”We have taken our children on a few work trips. Our son came to Milan and our daughter joined us in Lisbon for a couple of nights.”Naturally there might be one question that would spring to passenger’s mind should they realise the people in charge of their flight are married – what if they had an argument the night before?BA dismisses fears that any ensuing tension amid the close proximity of the cockpit might lead to turbulence.“They are extremely professional, just like any of our other highly trained pilots,” said a spokesman for the airline.For his part Mr Webb said: “On an operational level, it’s no different from flying with anyone else.”last_img read more
