Mike Price's last game as the nine-year UTEP head football coach resulted in defeat; it was another football game in Utepia.
Rice won 33-24. It was a score indicitative to Price's career in El Paso. The Miners were not blown out, as they had been in DECADES of yore. But they couldn't get a winning season for the last seven years in a row. The final 2012 record is 3-9.
Price had resigned Monday. He'll go down as a good coach and a great ambassador for UTEP.
Rice became bowl eligible. Price ends 31 years as a head coach - three bowls at UTEP, two Rose Bowls as coach at Washington State.
David Lee. Charlie Bailey. Gary Nord. Mike Price, a really good coach, also got Uteped.
