Mike White resigns at Florida; takes rival Georgia Bulldogs basketball coaching job

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Mike White was announced as Georgia men’s basketball head coach on Sunday. White compiled a 142-88 record in seven seasons at Florida.
 
Florida will compete in postseason play if selected, and associate head coach Al Pinkins will serve as interim head coach.
 
Scott Stricklin, Florida Athletic Director:
Mike White informed me this afternoon that he was accepting another job. It’s been a pleasure having Mike, Kira and the White family with us in Gainesville, and we wish them well. They are a wonderful family who always represented the Gators in a first-class manner.
 
“The search for the next Gator men’s basketball coach has already begun, and I look forward to identifying a leader who will embody the UAA’s vision of providing a championship experience with integrity.”
