A coach with diverse experience at the high school and college level will be the new head football coach at Jackson.
David White, who most recently was the head coach at Blue Springs High School in Missouri, has been selected as the new head coach of the Class 3A Broncs, Jackson activities director Mike Hansen said in an email Thursday to wyoming-football.com.
White also coached at two major colleges, working with Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma teams from 2007-10, with much of that time as the program’s recruiting coordinator. He was also the running backs coach at Nevada from 2017-19.
He was the head coach at Rigeland High School in Mississippi in 2019 and was at Blue Springs the past two years.
“We are excited to bring on Coach White and look forward to seeing the Bronc Football program continue to grow and develop into one of the best programs in Wyoming,” Hansen wrote.
White was also the head football coach at Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas from 2003-06, winning three league championships and coaching future NFL players Demarco Murray and Xavier Grimble.
He was also the head coach at Socorro High in El Paso, Texas, for two years and at Lake Havasu, Arizona, for a year, and also spent several years working with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, an all-star game for high schoolers from across the country.
White played collegiately at UNLV and was a tight end for the Rebels, finishing his college playing career in 1995.
Jackson has finished as the Class 3A runner-up the past two seasons. White replaces David Joyce, who resigned after five years to become the head coach at nearby Teton, Idaho.
Cheyenne South, Rawlins, Burns and Pinedale have also hired new head coaches for the upcoming season. Other programs in Wyoming seeking new head coaches this year are Cokeville, Glenrock, Moorcroft, Big Piney and Farson.
