This article serves two purposes. First of all highlighting the fine work that Price Partrick has and is doing as Director of Football Operations for Tennessee Tech, but also illustrating another example of being able to maintain some degree of continuity in a program with a strong DFO. This is just another example of a DFO being retained in a program in an industry that is known for frequent and almost complete turnover.
When the opportunity was given to Price Partrick to continue serving as Tennessee Tech’s Director of Football Operations, there was no hesitation.
Partrick joins Golden Eagle football coach Dewayne Alexander’s staff for his second tour of duty in the DoFO post, following a stint in that role in 2017 for Coach Marcus Satterfield’s staff.
“I’m just glad to be back home,” Partrick said. “Being on a staff like Coach Alexander has assembled, it’s amazing. The vision he has for Tennessee Tech is one I’d love to be a part of and I’m glad to have the opportunity to be back at my school, get to work with some familiar faces and some old teammates like Tre Lamb and Taylor Hennigan – it’s going to be awesome. I’m looking forward to it.”
Alexander added, “He came highly recommended by so many people here. I’ve known Price – he was a player when I coached here, then he came on as a coach when I was here, so I’ve got a previous relationship with him. On top of that, you throw in the fact that (Associate Athletic Director) Tammie McMillan and other people on campus had positives to say about him.
“You have to understand that when you’re putting together the business side of football – for example, bringing a recruit in, from the hotel room to reimbursement on mileage for official visits and all those things, booking certain buildings on campus. There are processes that you have to go through, dot the I’s and cross the T’s just to make sure everything is good and he has done that.”
Of course, it’s not a new role for Partrick. Knowing how to get things done and who to talk to makes it a perfect fit in the transition.
