White helped the development of 19 different starters on the defensive side of the ball, including Freeman who joined the team from the Canadian Football League during the offseason and set a franchise record for tackles in a season (203).

 

White joined the Colts after spending two seasons as the inside linebackers coach at the Air Force Academy (2010-11).

 

While at Air Force, White was instrumental in the development of linebackers Jordan Waiwaiole and Brady Amack, who were each first-year starters in 2010. Waiwaiole led the team in tackles with 96 in 2010, while Amack led the team with 136 in 2011.

A graduate of Wake Forest, White started at linebacker for the Demon Deacons from 2002-04. He finished his playing career with 227 tackles, 19.0 tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks and eight passes defensed, while starting 34-of-35 games played. White was a three-time Academic All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection and was named to the 2004 CoSIDA Academic All-District III team.
