White decides to stay put

Fans of Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs basketball are breathing a little easier today.
That’s because head coach Michael White has apparently opted to stay at Tech after being offered the chance to take over the same role at the University of Tennessee.
It’s been a big month for Tech basketball, and while much of the Tech Nation spent Sunday and Monday holding its breath and crossing its fingers that White wouldn’t make the move, it can now continue the celebration that started on April 2 with the hiring of Tyler Summitt as head coach of the Lady Techsters basketball team.

Every Louisiana Tech athletics fan knows that success for one of their teams means the potential loss of a head coach to a program able to offer a much more lucrative contract.

The 37-year-old White has compiled a record of 74-31 at Tech. The Bulldogs have captured back-to-back regular-season conference championships and will return four starters in 2014-15.
