Vandals Announce Coaching Changes

Staff Report
Idaho’s football team announced the promotion of former graduate assistant Pryce Tracy to running backs coach, and two other shifts on the coaching staff.
Former running backs coach Brian Reader will take charge of the receivers and retain his spot as recruiting coordinator, and previous receivers coach Tony Spencer will head the tight ends and fullbacks.
“Pryce is a great, young mind,” eighth-year Idaho coach Paul Petrino said in a news release. “He has a ton of passion to be a great coach. He really understands the game, has great knowledge, has been a lot of places. We’re just very excited to have Pryce become full-time.”
Tracy worked with Notre Dame for five years from 2013-18 as an offensive- and special-teams analyst, helping the Fighting Irish to three bowl wins in four tries while focusing mostly on quarterbacks in his offensive role. Notre Dame beat LSU in the Citrus Bowl in his final game on staff.
He was Division II Arkansas Tech’s quarterbacks coach/recruiting coordinator for the 2018 season before heading to Moscow.
After graduating from Indiana University South Bend, Tracy coached at South Bend Clay (Ind.) High School from 2009-11, then was a recruiting specialist at Alabama from 2011-12 — he was around when the Tide topped LSU 21-0 in the BCS championship.
“I am thankful to Coach Petrino and our AD Terry Gawlik for giving me the opportunity to become a full-time coach here at Idaho,” Tracy said. “I look forward to getting to work with our student-athletes.”
