Head Coach - University of Oregon
- National Fastpitch Coaches Association Pacifc Region Coaching Staff of the Year
Before his current Duck tenure, White was already well-known in softball circles as an International Softball Congress (ISC) Hall of Fame pitcher and 30-year coaching veteran. Duck fans will also fondly remember his two-season stint as an assistant coach in 2003-04 when his Duck pitchers and catchers helped Oregon advance to the NCAA regional final both campaigns.
As a player, White starred as a top pitcher on U.S. National Teams before he retired in 2007. A New Zealand native, he became a U.S. citizen in 1994 and helped guide the USA to a bronze medal in the 2000 World Championships when he went 2-0 with a 0.89 ERA and 19 strikeouts. In 1999, the U.S. won the silver medal at the Pan Am Games, and he was 3-2 with a 0.68 ERA and 35 strikeouts. He also played on three silver medal Pan-American Games teams in 1995, 1999 and 2003.
He enjoyed another successful stint with the American team in 2004 and played in his sixth quadrennial International Softball World Tournament. Altogether, he has helped teams claim two gold medals, two silver medals and one bronze in his four trips with New Zealand and two with the United States. Among other honors, the multiple Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) MVP pitcher and All-American helped lead teams to five ASA national titles and five ISC World Club Championships, and was the 2002 ASA Player of the Year.
