The Mississippi defensive line coaching job is staying in the family.

Terry Price, first cousin to recently departed line coach Tracy Rocker, is Ole Miss' new defensive line coach.

He takes over for Rocker, who left to take the same position with new Auburn coach Gene Chizik.

Price had been defensive ends coach at Auburn for 10 years until Tommy Tuberville resigned after last season.

This will be Price's second time in Oxford. He also coached Rebels defensive ends from 1995-98 before leaving with Tuberville.

Price coached some of the nation's top defensive ends while at Auburn, including five who went on to the NFL.

His hiring must still be approved by the state College Board.
