Email [email protected]

Entering his third season as the quarterbacks coach and director of football operations is Price Partrick. Partrick was added to the staff in the spring of 2018, having worked alongside the team for two campaigns.

The Bucs have finished sixth in passing offense in the conference each of the last two seasons under the direction of Partrick. In his first two seasons, Partrick’s quarterbacks have accounted for 22 passing touchdowns, while completing 388-of-696 passes for 4,450 yards. The quarterbacks are completing just over 55% of pass attempts in the first two seasons under Partrick.

In 2019, Partrick led Trey Mitchell to a .558 percent completion percentage, which currently ranks sixth all-time in program history. Mitchell finished the year 148-of-265 with 1,616 passing yards and 11 touchdowns.

The 2018 season was one for the record books and would not have been possible without the captain, Austin Herink. Under the direction of Partrick, Herink finished the season with 1,825 passing yards and six touchdowns in 11 games played. Herink also rushed for four touchdowns. Herink has etched his name in the record books, finishing second all-time in pass attempts (1,048), completions (615), career completion percentage (.587), third in passing yards (6,994) and fifth in total touchdowns (33).

In 2018, the Bucs registered the fourth-most pass attempts in a single season in ETSU history with 379, completing 211 passes which also ranks fourth-most in a single season. The 2,482 passing yards ranks sixth all-time in a single season in ETSU history and was done so under the direction of Partrick.

Prior to joining the Bucs, Partrick spent four seasons on staff at Tennessee Tech from (2014-17). During his time in Cookeville, Partrick spent the 2017 season coaching outside linebackers and nickelbacks, along with serving as the Director of Football Operations. Partrick saw numerous roles in his time with the Golden Eagles, including coaching the tight end crew in 2016 and wide receivers/offensive quality control coach in 2015. Partrick began his coaching career as a student assistant in the 2014 season, working with the wide receivers at Tennessee Tech.

The Chattanooga native has ties to the Southern Conference as he spent time on The Citadel roster in 2010. From there, he transferred to Chattanooga to rehab from shoulder surgeries. Coach Watson Brown gave him a chance to play quarterback at Tennessee Tech the following season. After another shoulder surgery forced Partrick to miss the 2012 season, he then played in three games in 2013 before suffering a career-ending surgery, which allowed him the chance to begin his coaching career.  

Partrick received his bachelor’s degree in fitness and wellness from Tennessee Tech in 2014. The Chattanooga native lettered in both football and golf at Baylor High School.
