Report | Terry Price Possible Defensive Line Coach Replacement

I don't know why I am, but I'm always a bit wary about quoting Football Scoop for information on replacements for the recently terminated defensive line coach Sam McElroy, defensive backs coach Otis Mounds and offensive line coach Matt Moore, but Football Scoop is reporting that Terry Price is the likely replacement along the defensive line:

Texas Tech: We have been told that one of Tubs' longtime guys Terry Price will be joining the staff as defensive line coach.

For a bit of information on Price, he's a graduate of Texas A&M and has worked for or with head coach Tommy Tuberville since his days at Ole Miss and through Tuberville's termination at Auburn. Once Tuberville was gone at Auburn, Price caught on with Houston Nutt at Ole Miss and now that Ole Miss has found themselves a new coach, Price finds himself most likely without a new job.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, in that Tuberville is doing all of the hiring, maybe Tuberville will give defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow the opportunity to find the secondary coach, but if this is true, that Price is the defensive line coach, Tuberville isn't going to trust or permit Glasgow to make the hire, Tuberville probably realizes that if improvement doesn't happen, he'll have no one else to blame so he might as well and hire who he wants rather than what Glasgow wants.

You can check out Price's biography at the Ole Miss website and the Rivals site has the players that Price is currently recruiting. Food for thought: Ole Miss had the #111 nationally ranked rush defense (Texas Tech was #120) and to be fair, had the #64 ranked rush defense the year before.
