Source: Louisiana Tech close to hiring White

Ole Miss assistant Michael White is on the Louisiana Tech campus for the second straight day and, barring an unexpected breakdown in negotiations, is expected to be named the Bulldogs' next head coach, multiple sources told on Tuesday.

The move should be official later this week.

White is a New Orleans native who played at Ole Miss and has spent the past seven years as an assistant in the program -- first for Rod Barnes, then for Andy Kennedy. White replaces Kerry Rupp, who was fired earlier this month after four seasons that featured a 20-44 record in the WAC.
