Mike Price said, "Their offense is extremely well coached... obviously."
That's how UTEP Head Coach Mike Price started to talk about the Memphis Tigers, praising their offense, especially their coaching. See, Mike Price's son and former UTEP Offensive Coordinator Eric Price runs the Memphis offense as their Offensive Coordinator under new head coach Larry Porter. This will be the first meeting on opposing sidelines between father and son, and the game includes Mike's son and Eric's brother, Aaron Price, UTEP's offensive coordinator.
Eric Price: When I first took this job, coach Porter asked me about how I would feel about that, and I really didn't think anything of it, but the closer it gets, the more I realize that it will be a bit difficult, but I think once the ball kicks off, I think it will be like any other game and you are just trying to win, and coach your guys and do the best that you can." Mike Price added, "It will be real different, to say the least. It's weird, and Eric texted me and said this is weird." Eric Price, "He's not trying to get any information out of me and I am not trying to get any information out of him, but I think I know their team a little bit better than they know mine, so maybe that will give us an advantage."
