Eugene, Ore. -- Oregon head softball coach Mike White is leaving the program, confirmed by UO's Athletic Department, first reported by Ryan Thorburn of the Register Guard. In his nine seasons at the helm of the Ducks softball program, White led his team to five Women's College World Series appearances, amassing a 435-111-1 record. Oregon never lost an NCAA Regional game in the New Zealand coach's tenure, going a perfect 24-0. 

In a statement provided by the University of Oregon, Athletic Director Rob Mullins said, “We appreciate all of Mike White’s contributions to the Oregon softball program over the last several years, and we wish him the best of luck in his new role. We will begin the search for a new head softball coach immediately." Mullins went on to say, “Oregon has the best softball stadium in the nation, the most dedicated and passionate fan base, and most importantly, an outstanding group of returning and incoming student-athletes. We will find a leader who will build upon the strong foundation already in place for our program.”

White told the Oregonian and the Register Guard that he would be taking up the head coach role at the University of Texas, where coach Connie Clark stepped down after 22 seasons in Austin. Chelsea Spencer will serve as the Ducks interim head coach during the search.
