White rejoins Wolfpack on Doeren's staff

Posted December 24, 2012

— Clayton White, who played football at North Carolina State University from 1997-2000, will return to his roots to coach safeties under new head coach Dave Doeren, the university announced Monday. He will also serve as co-special teams coordinator.

After his NC State graduation in 2001, White played three seasons in the NFL before starting his career on the sidelines. He has coached at Western Carolina, Western Michigan, Stanford, Western Kentucky and, most recently, the University of Connecticut. 

White is a native of Dunn and his wife, Kelly, is also an NC State grad.

"As I interviewed him, it became more and more apparent that this was more than just a job for him," Doeren said. "It was a destination and something that he would take a special pride in being a part of."

    Looks like State completed their Div II coaching staff just in time for Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone

    Coached special teams and running backs at Connecticut. Connectciut had 3 punt returns for TD's last season and Connectciut running back Lyle McCombs under Coach White ran for 2011 combined rushing yards in just his freshman and sophmore seasons. Hate to see him leave Connectciut but you can not blame a man for coming home.

    Maybe this guy will be able to convince Amersham to stay one more year.

    WOW...Looks like your color should be green instead of light blue...I find it difficult to believe you are calling something in Raleigh a sham when all you have to do is walk around in Chapel Hill and you get an utter feeling of guilt and remorse. Don't throw rocks when you live in a glass house or "karma" will sneak up and bite your .
