Terry Price Obituary is yet to be revealed by his family.

The Texas A&M football community is grieving the passing of Terry Price, who served as their defensive ends coach. 

Price, 55, was not only a valued coach but also a former Aggie player and top-notch recruiter. 

He joined the team’s coaching staff in 2012 and contributed greatly to the team’s success, which resulted in 21 bowl berths during his illustrious career. 

Unfortunately, the cause of his death is unknown at this time.

A distinguished coaching career in the SEC

Price was a renowned defensive line coach in the Southeastern Conference with two stints at Ole Miss (1995-98 and 2009-11) and ten seasons at Auburn (1999-2008) before returning to Texas A&M.

He was Kevin Sumlin’s assistant before Jimbo Fisher took over. 

Price’s coaching expertise benefitted the Aggies’ defensive line significantly, helping them lead the SEC in defense in 2020 and to a No.4 season ending rank.

Price stood out as an exceptional recruiter, recognized by both Rivals.com and 247Sports.com in 2014 as a Top 25 and No. 12 overall recruiter in the nation, respectively. 

His impact on the Aggies was undeniable, as he masterfully recruited five-star DL standouts Myles Garrett (2014), Daylon Mack (2015), DeMarvin Leal (2019), and Justin Madubuike (2016), contributing significantly to the team’s success.

Notably, he coached Quentin Groves, who holds the record for all-time sacks leader in Auburn’s history.

Price, the All-Southwest conference honoree and NFL player

Price was a four-year Aggie football letterman and played for the Aggies from 1986-1989, earning All-Southwest Conference honors as a senior and being named an honorable mention All-American by The Sporting News. 

He led the Aggie’s defensive line in tackles both as a junior and a senior while earning two conference championships during his career. 

He even played two seasons with Chicago Bears and the Miami Dolphins in the NFL before returning to Aggieland in 1992 to complete his undergraduate degree. 

Terry began his football coaching career as a volunteer under Coach Slocum’s staff.

Terry Price obituary: Father, family man, and friend

Since Terry Price obituary has not yet been revealed, his funeral details are also not shared.

Price’s impact extended beyond the football field; he was beloved by his players, colleagues, and community. 

The Texas A&M shared in a statement, “Terry was not only a great Aggie, football coach and recruiter, he was an even better husband, father and man. The impact he had on this program and his players is immeasurable. Our football family has suffered an incredible loss.” 

Many other coaches, former players, and fans shared the same sentiment of his passing.

After his untimely passing, Price’s wife, Kenya and their two sons, Alexander and Devin, were left to carry on without him. 

However, the family received some comfort as Devin, who was inspired by his late father, pursued football.

He played for the Aggies for three years before transferring to Florida Atlantic University this past offseason.
