UTEP football coach Mike Price is retiring after a 31-year career notable for two Rose Bowl bids at Washington State and a drinking binge that cost him the Alabama job before he ever coached a game for the Crimson Tide.

Price announced the decision Monday with one game left in his ninth season with the Miners (3-8). He led UTEP to 8-4 records and bowl games his first two years in El Paso but hasn't had a winning record since.

The 66-year-old Price, who started at Weber State in 1981, has a 177-182 career record entering his final game Saturday at home against Rice. He is sixth among active FBS coaches in victories.

"I'm retiring from the game I've loved my entire life," Price said at a campus news conference.

Price's son, Aaron Price, is UTEP's offensive coordinator, but the elder Price said he was endorsing defensive coordinator Andre Patterson as the next head coach.

"I wish I could coach here forever," Price said. "But that doesn't happen. That's the reality of life."

Award finalists announced

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o are the finalists for the Maxwell Award, which goes to the nation's top college football player. The finalists for the Maxwell and several other awards to be presented Dec. 6 were announced Monday. For a list of all the finalists, see Scoreboard on page 7C.

NHL

New proposal may be coming

No new proposals were presented Monday night at a meeting between the NHL and the players' association as talks resumed after a week's hiatus. But one might be coming.

After the session in midtown Manhattan, which lasted about 90 minutes and included two of the league's stars, Tampa Bay's Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league pressed the union for a full, formal proposal to "clarify" the PA's positions. "We'd like to hear it all together," he said. The league wants to settle the issue of dividing hockey-related revenues before debating the contracting issues. "It's all tied together," he said.

Donald Fehr, the union's executive director, said the players tried to engage the owners in a discussion on player contracting issues, but they were "unwilling." Some core economic issues were discussed and the sides did agree to confer Tuesday morning.

The league wants a 50-50 split of revenues, but getting there is problematic. It also has proposed a five-year limit on contracts, extending free-agency eligibility from age 27 or seven years of service to 28 or eight years, changing entry-level contracts and eliminating salary arbitration.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Chaminade takes down Texas

De'Andre Haskins scored 32 points to lead Division II Chaminade to an 86-73 upset of Texas on Monday night, 30 years after the tiny school made its mark on college hoops with its famous upset over top-ranked Virginia. The victory was just Chaminade's seventh at the Maui Invitational since the tournament started in 1984.

In other college basketball: Victor Oladipo had 15 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 1 Indiana to a 63-53 victory over Georgia in the semifinals of the Progressive Legends Classic. ... Markel Starks scored 23 points and Georgetown beat No. 11 UCLA 78-70 in the other semifinal. ... Mike Felt scored 10 of his 24 points in overtime as North Dakota State defeated Youngstown State 81-77. ... Stanford is the new No. 1 women's team in the nation, barely edging Connecticut for the top spot.

AROUND THE HORN

The Marlins finalized their big salary dumping trade that sends All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes to the Blue Jays with pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, catcher John Buck and outfielder Emilio Bonifacio for seven low-priced players.

Miami receives infielders Yunel Escobar and Adeiny Hechavarria, pitchers Henderson Alvarez, Anthony DeSclafani and Justin Nicolino, catcher Jeff Mathis and outfielder Jake Marisnick under the deal, which was agreed to last week and completed Monday. The Marlins also are sending Toronto cash. The trade was finalized Monday after baseball Commissioner Bud Selig decided not to block it. The players traded by the Marlins have combined guaranteed salaries of $163.75 million through 2018, including $96 million due Reyes.

In other baseball news: Righthander Shawn Camp is staying with the Cubs, agreeing to a $1.35 million, one-year contract. ... The Padres exercised the 2014 and 2015 option years in manager Bud Black's contract.
