Former Alabama coach Mike Price returns to UTEP in interim capacity

Mike Price is back in college football as he returns to UTEP as interim coach after the Miners fired Sean Kugler after four-plus seasons, per Brett McMurphy.

Price is best known for his short stint as coach at Alabama. He was fired in 2003 before even coaching a game after he was found visiting a strip club and having $1,000 charged to his hotel room by an unknown woman while playing in a golf tournament. Price had been hired from Washington State, where he spent 14 seasons and coached the Cougars to a 83-78 record.

After the Alabama scandal, Price made his first stop in El Paso as UTEP’s coach, spending nine years and recording a 48-61 record.
