TERRE HAUTE, IND. – Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology head football coach Jeff Sokol has announced the first addition to his coaching staff, naming Brian White as the team's offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator.
White comes to Rose-Hulman after serving assistant coaching roles at the University of Cincinnati, the University of Notre Dame and the University of Maryland.
White's efforts helped Cincinnati led the Big East Conference in almost every offensive category in 2010. The Bearcats had the league's top passing offense and produced the school's first 1,000 yard rusher since 2004. Additionally, five Bearcats received all-conference honors on the offensive side of the ball.
In 2009, while at Notre Dame, White assisted on an offensive staff that produced the eighth-rated offense in the nation, averaging 451.75 yards per game, and the winner of 2009 Biletnikoff Award.
During the 2008 season at Maryland, White also filled the role of special teams and tight ends coach in preparation for the Humanitarian Bowl. White's special teams unit featured a 99-yard kickoff return for touchdown, setting a bowl record, and helped Maryland defeat Nevada 42-35. Additionally, White also served on Maryland staffs that made appearances in the 2006 Champs Sports Bowl, beating Purdue 24-7, and the 2007 Emerald Bowl.
Prior to his stint at Maryland, White spent two seasons with the postgraduate football program at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., serving as offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator. During his tenure at Hargrave, White tutored two future NFL offensive linemen, Branden Albert (Chiefs) and Jared Gaither (Ravens).
A native of Oakland, N.J., White is a 2004 graduate of NCAA Division III Juniata College where he earned a bachelor's degree in history. He received a master's degree in special education from Maryland in 2008.
