The Coach



Elevating Coaches Beyond the Game


Lance White enters his third season at the helm of the Panthers in 2020-21 after being named as the ninth head coach in Pitt women’s basketball history on April 19, 2018.

In White’s second season in charge, the Panthers showed growth in every part of the program and it was capped with an ACC Tournament victory over the defending ACC Champions, Notre Dame. The win over the Irish marked just the Panthers second ACC Tournament win in program history as freshman sensation Dayshanette Harris knocked down the game-winning jumper with just 2.7 seconds left in the game. With the win, Pitt handed Notre Dame just their second loss in ACC Tournament history.

White came to Pitt after spending 15 years at Florida State, where he helped the Seminoles to a 350-145 (.707) record, including 12 seasons of 20+ wins.
During his time at FSU, 10 players were selected in the WNBA Draft, eight earned ACC All-Defensive team honors and 37 earned all-conference awards. He helped the Seminoles reach the NCAA Tournament in 13 of the past 14 years, while the team won at least one NCAA Tournament game in each of its past 15 appearances.
For his standout coaching efforts during the 2016-17 season, White was named the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) National Assistant Coach of the Year.
Prior to FSU, White spent 11 seasons at Texas Tech, including five years as an assistant coach with the Lady Raiders’ top-10 program under legendary head coach Marsha Sharp. With White on staff, Texas Tech won three Big 12 championships and advanced to seven consecutive NCAA Tournaments, including five Sweet 16 and two Elite Eight appearances. He was a student assistant on Tech’s 1993 national championship team and a graduate assistant coach for two seasons before being elevated to a full-time coach in 1998.
While in Lubbock, White worked with some of the best players the game has ever seen, including National Player of the Year and three-time WNBA MVP Sheryl Swoopes as well as Plenette Pierson, who was named 2007 WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year.
A 1996 graduate of Texas Tech, White earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science. He went on to receive a master’s degree in sports administration in August 1998. He attended Lubbock Christian University for three semesters before transferring to Texas Tech in January 1993.
