White will assume his new position at UVA on Sept. 4.

“Ted is an exceptional administrator and will be a great addition to the Virginia athletics staff,” Williams said. “He has over 20 years of collegiate athletics experience, and is highly regarded nationally for his work with student-athletes, coaches, athletics staff and university administrators. I am excited about the leadership and expertise he will bring to UVA as we begin to develop and implement a world class student development program.”

White joined the Georgia athletics staff in 2006 as the director of the Rankin Smith Sr. Academic Center for Student-Athletes and was promoted to associate athletic director in 2009. White was elevated to Georgia’s senior staff in 2011, serving as senior associate athletic director. He was responsible for the oversight of the academic support services and student development programming for over 620 student-athletes.

White served as executive associate athletic director at UGA from 2016-17 before being promoted to deputy athletic director in January of 2018. In addition to student development programming, White was responsible for the oversight of sports medicine, nutrition and student wellness for the past three years at UGA. He has been the sport administrator for the baseball and equestrian programs since 2011.

“I am very grateful to Carla Williams for trusting me with the opportunity to join the University of Virginia community,” White said. “Having worked with her for nearly 12 years, I am familiar with her remarkable leadership ability and look forward to helping bring her vision to life alongside Jim Booz and the outstanding student-athletes, coaches, faculty, alumni and staff throughout Wahoo Nation.

“The incredible people at the University of Georgia, particularly President Morehead and Greg McGarity, have blessed me and my family with incredible experiences and I will be forever thankful for their support.”

White arrived at Georgia after serving three years as director of the Academic Center for Student-Athletes at LSU from 2003-06.

Prior to his tenure at LSU, White held positions as a management team member and director of academic support at the University of California, Berkeley (1997-2001), and coordinator of academics and eligibility at the University of California, Davis (1994-97).

White earned a bachelor of arts degree in communication from the University of California, San Diego (1992), where he was a member of the baseball team, and master’s degree in sport management from the University of Richmond (1998).

He is married to Carrie Leger White and is the father of two children, Jack and Sophie.

White replaces former UVA associate athletics director Adrien Harraway, who resigned on July 16 after accepting a position with NACDA.
