Weber State College football coach and athletic director Mike Price is among a couple of dozen men being considered for the head coaching position at Washington State University, a WSU spokesman said.

The job became available when Dennis Erickson announced he was leaving to take the head coaching job at the University of Miami.Price is on a list of 20 to 25 names, Marcia Saneholz, WSU senior associate athletic director, said.

She did not know whether Price had talked with athletic director Jim Livengood.

"Some of the poeple have contacted us, and some have just been nominated by other people," she said. "I don't know if (Price) contacted the athletic director."

Price was not available for com-ment.

According to the WSU sports information office, the selection committee has just been named and hadn't even met yet, as of Tuesday. It will meet in the next two to three days and plans "to have someone in place within seven to 10 days," mainly because spring football drills are near and they need somebody quick.

An official candidate list will be forthcoming.

Price played two years at WSU, was a graduate assistant there for two seasons and was an assistant from 1974-1977.
