Terry Price wife, Kenya Hodges, was always the backbone of the former Texas A&M assistant coach. The couple share two kids, both sons, Alexander and Devin.
Now, Kenya will have to raise the two boys singlehandedly as the Aggies coach passed away at age 55, as announced by the Texas A&M website on Friday.
A graduate of Texas A&M University in 1992, Price was fondly known by his initials “TP” among his A&M circles.
During his time at Texas, Price played a key role in Myles Garrett‘s recruitment, who later became the no.1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The legacy left by Terry will be forever remembered by the Aggies fans and by the football community. Our thoughts are with Kenya and the two boys.

Together the couple raised two boys, Devin and Alexander, and are now mourning the loss of their beloved father. Terry had always kept his family out of the public limelight.
