Announced earlier today, former West Virginia quarterback Pat White was hired to be the running backs coach at the University of South Florida.

White quarterbacked the Mountaineers for four years, from 2005-08, compiling 35-8 record and winning four bowl games. White owns the WVU record for career touchdowns (103) just edging out Geno Smith (102). White is tails only Smith in career total yards (10,529) and is also second in both career rushing yards (4,480) and career rushing touchdowns (47).

White was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the second round of the 2009 draft and spent several years playing professionally in the NFL, Arena Football League and Canadian Football League.

White has spent the past two years as the quarterbacks coach at Alcorn State, where he coached two different quarterbacks to win Southwestern Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors.

At USF White joins WVU’s most recent outside receivers coach, Xavier Dye, who joined the Bulls’ staff last month.
