1976 Profile: Errol Prisby

Special Teams Coach
"Ed Cavanaugh's successor as coach of the Buffalo special teams is Errol Prisby, who played for Coach Lou Saban at Denver in 1967. Defensive backfield coach at the University of Massachusetts for four seasons (1972-75), Prisby made the Broncos as a free agent. A defensive back and flanker, he also paired with Floyd Little on kickoff and punt returns.
The new assistant is a native of Kent, Ohio where he excelled in football, basketball and track at Roosevelt High School. A running back, Prisby played collegiately at the University of Cincinnati. A three-year letterman for the Bearcats, he was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference team in 1963. Errol was selected by his Cincinnati teammates as the squad's most efficient and consistent back during his senior year. He graduated from Cincinnati with a B.S. in business education.
Following his year with the Broncos, Prisby took a job with Mountain Bell Telephone Company. Dick MacPherson, ex-Denver assistant, got him started in coaching at Massachusetts in 1972."
