Former Chiefs Coach Gets a College Coordinator Job

Looks like even former Chiefs coaches are finding some work.

Eric Price, the Chiefs receivers coach last season, will become the new offensive coordinator for the Memphis Tigers. Price's name will be sent to the Tennessee Board of Regents for approval according to an announcement from the University today.

If you recall, Price was hired by Herm Edwards before the 2008 season. He was among the coaches that did not make it through the new Haley regime over the offseason.

It's interesting that the receivers coach was released because haven't had a lot of luck filling it. Price was replaced by Dedric Ward who was then replaced midway through the season by Richie Anderson.

Price was fired with a year left on his contract so he was still collecting from the Chiefs this season.
