CHARLOTTESVILLE — Virginia’s athletic department dipped into Georgia’s employee pool again on Thursday, appointing Ted White as deputy athletics director.
White, who will begin his job in September, had been at Georgia since 2006 and most recently held the same title he’s assuming in Charlottesville.
“Ted is an exceptional administrator and will be a great addition to the Virginia athletics staff,” UVa athletic director Carla Williams said in a press release. “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.”
Williams and White worked together at UGA for more than a decade.
“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,” White said in the release.
White played baseball at UC-San Diego and holds a master’s degree from Richmond.
White replaces former UVA associate athletics director Adrien Harraway, who resigned on July 16 after accepting a position with NACDA.
