Houston Nutt Press Conference: 10.17

Rebels Host Arkansas

A 16-year SEC coaching veteran, Terry Price joined Houston Nutt's Ole Miss staff as defensive line coach on January 16, 2009.

In his first season back in Oxford, Price led an attacking Rebel defensive line that helped Ole Miss rack up 96 TFLs and 36 sacks, ranking in the top two in the SEC and 11th and 14th in the nation, respectively. Price's line continued to attack the backfield in 2010, as Ole Miss finished No. 20 in the nation in both TFLs (82) and sacks (31).

Price mentored defensive tackle Jerrell Powe to All-SEC honors each of the last two seasons. In 2009, defensive ends Emmanuel Stephens and Marcus Tillman tied for 11th in the SEC with 5.5 sacks each, and defensive end Kentrell Lockett totaled 10.0 TFLs and 13 QB pressures.

This marks Price's second stint in Oxford, as he also coached defensive ends for the Rebels from 1995-98. Since his departure, Price held that same post for Auburn from 1999-2008.

Under Price's watch, Auburn's defensive line topped the SEC in sacks in 2005. That season included an 11-sack game against rival Alabama.

Auburn ranked sixth nationally in scoring defense in 2005, was seventh in 2006 and sixth in 2007 in the same category. Price's defensive ends were a part of a Tiger defense that led the nation in scoring defense and was fifth in total defense in 2004.

Among Price's past pupils is Quentin Groves, the all-time Auburn career leader in sacks and a two-time all-SEC selection. Antonio Coleman (2008), Marquies Gunn (2005), Stanley McClover (2004, 2005), Reggie Torbor (2003) and Marcus Washington (1999) were also All-SEC honorees under Price. Five of Price's defensive ends were NFL draft picks between 1999 and 2007.

Former Rebel Derrick Burgess (New England), Torbor (Buffalo) and Groves (Oakland) are among the current NFL players coached by Price.

In addition, Price helped recruit to Auburn current Arizona Cardinal linebacker Karlos Dansby; Tampa Bay Buccaneer running back Cadillac Williams (2004 All-American; 2005 NFL Rookie of the Year), Atlanta Falcon cornerback David Irons and New England Patriot cornerback Jonathan Wilhite.

As an honorable mention All-American defensive end at Texas A&M, Price helped lead the Aggies to Southwest Conference titles in 1986 and 1987. He was a 10th-round draft pick of the NFL's Chicago Bears and played there in 1990 and with the Miami Dolphins in 1991.

After receiving a bachelor's degree from Texas A&M in 1992, Price was a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater before working as defensive line coach and strength coach at Western Kentucky in 1994 before moving on to Ole Miss.

The Atlanta, Ga., native is married to the former Kenya Hodges, who is an Ole Miss graduate. The couple has two sons, Alexander and Devin.
