Florida Gators surprise college basketball with hiring of Louisiana Tech coach Michael White

Fans of the Florida Gators Men’s Basketball program expected a big-name coach to be hired replacing Billy Donovan, who bolted for the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Florida administration feels that they have hired the right man.

On Thursday, Florida hired an up-and-coming coach in 38-year-old Michael White, from Louisiana Tech.

White received a six-year contract worth $12 million dollars total and $2 million a year.

White, a native of Dunedin, Florida, also has coached at Jacksonville State and Ole Miss as an assistant.

White is an SEC guy. He played from 1995 to 1999 for the Mississippi Rebels. He became a starter in the eighth game of his freshman year and remained a starter for the remainder of his four years at Ole Miss. During White’s college career, he had 370 assists, the 6th highest total in Ole Miss history. He also led his team to two SEC Western Division Titles, three consecutive NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournaments (1997, 1998 and 1999), and the first NCAA Tournament victory in the history of Ole Miss.

At the 100-game mark, he had the highest winning percentage and the most wins of any coach in Louisiana Tech history (101-40 .716). In addition to that the Bulldogs have not lost a home game since December 4, 2013. Currently that is the 4th longest active Division 1 home court win streak.

Slugging outfielder/designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero had quite a career in Major League Baseball with Montreal, the LA Angels, Texas and Baltimore.

His totals are a .318 average, 2,590 hits, 449 homers, 1,496 RBI’s.

But no one wanted to sign him as a free agent after the 2011 season.

Cleveland took a look at him briefly during spring training down in his native Dominican Republic. And now, the Toronto Blue Jays have him getting in shape in the minors.

The 37-year-old is moving up to Las Vegas, the Blue Jays Triple-A affiliate.

Guerrero was tearing up the Class A League at Dunedin, Florida, hitting .450 with a double, four home runs and eight RBI’s.
