After almost 10 years away from the UTEP football program, a familiar name is back. Aaron Price is returning to the Miners as special team coordinator for the 2021 season.

"We are really pleased to have Aaron back in the program," UTEP head football coach Dana Dimel said in the official school release. "Obviously, he has really strong roots to UTEP and El Paso. He brings plenty of experience and knowledge to our coaching staff. We think he is just going to add a whole new dimension to our special teams unit."


Price spent the last two seasons with Northern Arizona as their special teams coordinator and running backs coach. He also spent three seasons at Tulane as their quarterbacks coach. Price was an assistant at UTEP from 2003-2012. In 2017 and 2018, he was the head football coach at Hanks High and he guided them to the playoffs in his second season where he faced off against Andress and former UTEP assistant Jeff Woodruff.

Price is ecstatic to return to El Paso as an assistant coach for the Miners. "To Coach Dimel and UTEP Athletics, I can’t tell you how happy you’ve made my three daughters with this homecoming reunion, and as they said to me, 'Getting our Daddy back home!' To El Paso, UTEP, my daughters Andi, Blakeanne, and Maddison, you all mean the absolute world to me! I'm so excited to be coming home! It’s 'ALL IN TIME!' GO MINERS!"
