White replaces former head coach Tom Crean. The Bulldogs went 6-26 this season this year, which was Crean's fourth with Georgia. Crean failed to post a single winning season in his tenure at Georgia.
White spent the previous seven seasons with another SEC program -- Florida. In his time at Florida, White posted a respectable 142-88 record.
Georgia has not qualified for the NCAA Tournament since 2015, when they were eliminated by Michigan State in the round of 64. They haven't advanced past the first-round of the NCAA Tournament since 2002 and have not won the SEC Championship since 2008.
