Kyle White
Position: Assistant Coach - Sprints/Hurdles/High Jump
Experience: 3 Years

Kyle White is entering his third year as an assistant coach with Stanford. He works with the sprinters, short hurdlers, and high jumpers.

Kyle has led the resurgence of our men's sprints," said Franklin P. Director of Track and Field Edrick Floreal. "We have been getting school records broken just about every weekend. We are going to continue to try to recruit and build that program around Kyle, who I believe will take us to the next level."

Last season, White led a group of male sprinters that was the deepest in years for Stanford. Amaechi Morton claimed All-America honors at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 400-meter hurdles, setting a school record in the event along the way. In addition, the 4x100-meter relay team advanced to the Preliminary round of the NCAA Championships. During the indoor season, Tyrone McGraw set a new school record in the 60 meters, while Morton claimed the Cardinal record in the 400.

In 2009, White worked with short hurdler, Myles Bradley, who had a breakthrough season for the Cardinal. Bradley set school records in both the 60- and 110-meter hurdles. He was the MPSF Champion in the 60-meter hurdles and an All-American in both events. In the sprints, Ryan Fisicaro set a school record in the 60 meters.

White came to Stanford from the University of Arkansas where he spent two years as an assistant coach under legendary Razorbacks head coach, John McDonnell.

In 2008, White coached J-Mee Samuels to third place finishes in both the 60 and 200 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Samuels finished the season ranked in the top-four in both events in Arkansas history. Under White's guidance Arkansas' 4x100-meter relay also qualified for the NCAA Championships in both 2007 and 2008.

White has worked with six athletes that competed in the 2007 IAAF World Championships held in Osaka, Japan. They include Americans Tyson Gay, Wallace Spearmon, Derrick Williams and Samuels, Canadian Jared Connaughton and Jamaican two-time Olympic Gold-Medalist Veronica Campbell.

Gay won the gold medal in the 100 meters, 200 meters and as a member of the 4x100-meter relay while Campbell won the 100 meters on the women's side.

White, a native of Arlington, Texas, has 15 years of Division-I coaching experience and spent eight seasons as an assistant under head coach John Sauerhage at Texas-Arlington. During his time coaching the Mavericks' sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers and relays, White's athletes earned 106 individual Southland Conference titles. He was also a member of eight men's and women's Southland Conference team championships.

Prior to his arrival in Arlington, White spent time as an assistant coach at Bucknell (1996-98), where he coached 14 Patriot League champions and was a member of four Patriot League team championships, and at East Tennessee State (1994-96), where he coached two Southern Conference champions and was a member of two Southern Conference team championships, under legendary head coach Dave Walker.

White competed on the collegiate level for the University of Arkansas (1986-89) and earned three All-Southwest Conference accolades. During his tenure with the Arkansas track and field program, the squad won two NCAA titles and five SWC championships.
