The Texas A&M Aggies are distraught this week after Terry Price, Texas A&M’s defensive ends coach and former Aggies standout, died Friday, the school announced.
He was 55-years-old.
No cause of death was given in the school’s announcement.
“Terry was not only a great Aggie, football coach and recruiter, he was an even better husband, father and man,” Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement. “The impact he had on this program and his players is immeasurable. Our football family has suffered an incredible loss.”
After his time playing college football, Price was drafted in the 10th round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Bears, playing two games with Chicago.
During his coaching tenure, Price helped develop standouts such as two-time All-American pass rusher Myles Garrett as he went on to be selected No. 1 overall in the draft by the Cleveland Browns. He is also credited with helping guide late NFL linebacker Quentin Groves when he was at Auburn. Groves finished his college football career at the top of the Tigers’ all-time sacks list.
In 2020, the Aggies had the SEC’s top-ranked defense, with Price at the helm.
Price is survived by his wife, Kenya, and two sons, Alexander and Devin.
Price coached in the SEC for 28 years and returned to Texas A&M in 2012. He played for the Aggies under coaches Jackie Sherrill and R.C. Slocum from 1986-1989.
Before that, he also had stops at Western Kentucky (1994), Ole Miss (1995-98 and 2009-11). Auburn (1999-2008) and Texas Tech (2011).
