White's goal: make UCF a top-25 athletics program
ORLANDO, FLORIDA –Dr. Daniel J. White, vice president and director of athletics at UCF, has signed a new five-year contract–with an annual one-year rollover clause–to continue in those roles. White’s tenure has featured unprecedented success in competition, the classroom and the community since he took over the Knights’ programs late in 2015.
“Danny has excelled at building a nationally recognized athletics program where our student-athletes are thriving academically and in competition,” UCF interim president Thad Seymour Jr. said. “The Knights are one of the most exciting teams in the nation, and I can’t wait to see what our student-athletes and coaches accomplish under Danny’s leadership in the years ahead.”
“As much pride as we take in what UCF athletics has been able to accomplish the last few years, in so many ways we have just scratched the surface of our potential,” said White. “I’m thrilled that we will be able to continue progressing towards our goal of making UCF a perennial top-25 athletics program.
“I couldn’t be more committed to building UCF for the long term–and I am humbled to be able to lead such a talented group of coaches, staff, and student-athletes who make it all happen. I’d like to thank our interim president, Thad Seymour, for his leadership and unwavering support, as well as our many generous donors and sponsors who share our ambitious vision and are bringing it to fruition.
“Knight Nation, our future is as bright as the Florida sunshine–we’re all gonna need shades!”
