Texas A&M defensive end coach Terry Price has died at the age of 55 for an undisclosed reason, according to a statement from the university.
Price played at Texas A&M from 1986 to 1989 and coached the defensive line at Western Kentucky (1994), Ole Miss (1995-98; 2009-11), Auburn (1999-2008) and Texas Tech (2011) before returning at his alma mater in 2012.
He coached the defensive line for three seasons before moving into a specific defensive end role in 2015. During that time, he coached future NFL stars such as Justin Madubuike, DeMarvin Leal and former pick No. 1 overall Myles Garrett.
“Terry was not just 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 has had on this program and its players is immeasurable. Our football family has suffered an incredible loss.

During his playing days, Price was part of the Aggies’ famous “Wrecking Crew” defense and helped them win three consecutive Southwest Conference championships.
He was selected in the 10th round by the Chicago Bears in the 1990 NFL Draft and played in two games.
Price is also known as the “pitmaster” of the Aggies barbecue, as he regularly hosted defensive lineman barbecues.
Price’s son, Devin Price, was a wide receiver for Texas A&M for the past three seasons. After graduating earlier this month, he transferred to FAU ahead of the 2023 season.
In addition to Devin, Terry is survived by his wife Kenya and his other son Alexander who also graduated from Texas A&M this month.
