Nevada running backs coach David White is leaving Reno for a high school job in Mississippi.

Per Meridian Star reporter Brandon Shields, White has accepted the football coach/athletic director job at Ridgeland High.

White has been Nevada's running backs coach the last two seasons. He also served as the team's recruiting coordinator.

White was previously the head coach at Bishop Gorman from 2003-06, going 30-12 and winning three conference championships. He was the head coach at Lake Havasu High in 2002 and Socorro High in 2000-01.

White also was an assistant coach on the 2005 U.S. Army All-American West team and served as the director of player development at the Army All-American Bowl and as the director of the FBU All-American Bowl, so he has a lot of experience in the high school ranks.

White takes over a Ridgeland program that went 5-6 last season, including 2-5 in league play.

White is the second assistant coach to leave Nevada this offseason, joining defensive line coach Jason Kaufusi, who got a job at UCLA. He was replaced with Jackie Shipp.
