COLUMBIA, MO (KCTV) -

The University of Missouri has fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross. 

Cross was fired just hours after Mizzou's 31-13 loss to South Carolina. 

"I am very appreciative of all that DeMontie has done for Mizzou, and am sorry that this did not work out. However, after careful evaluation, I believe it is important to make this change now," head football coach Barry Odom said in a statement. 

Before his coaching career, Cross played free safety at the University of Missouri. 

He has coached for 18 years in a career that's spanned both the NFL and college.
