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.

Dayton’s Benson tears ACL in left knee ending promising season

An MRI examination revealed that University of Dayton junior forward Josh Benson suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during last night’s 62-50 win over Ole Miss.  The surgery and rehab to repair the injury will put Benson out for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.  The 6-9 junior had started every game this season at forward for the Flyers.
“Everyone in our program feels for Josh right now,” Flyer head coach Archie Miller said.  “He was really playing at both ends of the floor with a confidence that comes from being dedicated to getting better every day.  But he will still have a big role for our team as he comes back from this.  We will need his leadership and enthusiasm with us as we head into conference.

“He knows he has the support of his family, his coaches and his teammates and I expect him to have a big year next season.”
Benson is UD’s second-leading scorer (10.9) and rebounder (5.2,), up from averages of 5.6 and 3.5 a year ago. He leads UD and is fourth in the Atlantic 10 Conference in FG% (.610, 64-105).  He scored seven points and had four rebounds in 11 minutes against Ole Miss before suffering the injury.  Benson had scored in double figures in five of the last six games going into Friday’s contest.
Dayton finished non-conference play at 10-4.

Lack of success at Ole Miss leads Nutt to resign

Two years ago, Mississippi Rebels head coach Houston Nutt seemed to have his football program on the upswing.

The Arkansas native arrived in Oxford, Mississippi after a 10-year career at SEC rival Arkansas and he helped lead the Rebels off to a good start of 18-8 during the first two years which included Cotton Bowl wins over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.

The Rebels had not enjoyed that kind of success two seasons in a row in almost 40 years. But everyone overlooked the fact that Nutt achieved success with the players left over from previous head coach Ed Orgeron. He could not upgrade the roster with his own recruits.

That is the reason why on Monday, the 54-year-old Nutt announced he’ll resign at the end of the season. He’ll stay on to coach the final three games against Louisiana Tech, LSU and Mississippi State, according to Rebels athletic director Pete Boone.

Ole Miss has lost 12 straight SEC football games, including the 30-13 debacle last Saturday against Kentucky. The Rebels are a disappointing 2-7, 0-6 in the tough SEC this year.

Nutt, who is earning $2.7 million this season, has a 24-23 record at Ole Miss.

The downward spiral for Nutt and his program was in the 2010 season opener, when Jacksonville State upset the Rebels in double overtime 49-48. The fans in Oxford were appalled and called for his resignation. That was the first time in the school’s football history that the Rebels had lost to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The Rebels can’t seem to find and keep a football coach for long. The next hiring will be their fifth since 1998 and third since 2007.

The Zips finished the 2010 season at 1-11, but will have 13 returning starters on offense and defense along with 35 letterwinners.

Rob Ianello is in his second year as the Akron head coach after serving as an assistant at Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Arizona and Alabama.

Defensively, junior linebacker Brian Wagner is the leader. A pre-season all-MAC selection, returns after leading the Zips with 130 tackles.

Sophomore transfer Clayton Moore has been named the Akron starting quarterback.

Moore who was signed by Ole Miss, arrives at Akron from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College where he completed 155-of-257 passes for 2,395 yards and 23 touchdowns last year while leading the Bulldogs the JUCO state championship and earned MVP honors at the Mississippi Bowl.

RB Brown transfers from Wisconsin to Pittsburgh

Talented running back Zach Brown has decided to transfer from Wisconsin to Pittsburgh and will immediately become eligible to play.

There is no sitting out period for Brown, because he has already earned his bachelor’s degree and he only played three seasons for the Badgers. He took advantage of the same NCAA rule that QB Jeremiah Masoli used to leave Oregon and transfer to Ole Miss last season.

The rule allows student-athletes who have graduated with one year of eligibiltiy left can transfer to a school with a graduate program that the student-athletes previous school didn’t have.

Brown rushed for 1,152 yards on 240 carries scoring 11 touchdowns for the Badgers.

A North and South runner, Brown saw himself fourth on the depth charts in the Wisconsin backfield after Spring Football.
