Odum spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons as the secondary coach at Montana after serving as a graduate assistant at Utah in 1996 and 1997.
At Montana he coached in the secondary and had all four of the backfield starters earn some sort of all-conference recognition in 1999.

In 1999, Montana was first in the league in pass efficiency defense.
