Quannas White Elevated to Associate Head Coach
POSTED: June 9, 2023 -- 12:24 p.m. CT
Friday afternoon, Houston Cougars men's basketball head coach Kelvin Sampson announced Quannas White has been elevated to associate head coach.
"We are thrilled to announce that Quannas has been promoted to associate head coach. I have watched his passion and his work ethic and seen the relationships he has built with our kids. He has made a huge impact in our program from day one, whether it is his teaching, his coaching or his positive attitude," Coach Sampson said, who begins his 10th season with the Cougars in 2023-24. "You want to reward people who have been loyal and made a commitment to the program. This is a way we could make a commitment to Quannas."
"It was a privilege to play for Coach Sampson, and it's been a privilege to work beside him for the last six seasons. What we have been able to accomplish here has been great. I am really excited about being with this program and trying to continue to help him win games," Coach White said. "I just try to pour everything I can into these kids every day and teach these guys everything I have learned."
White came to Houston for the 2017-18 season after serving at WKU. Since joining the Cougars, he has helped lead Houston to a 176-34 overall record with five NCAA Tournament appearances – including the 2021 NCAA Final Four – three American Athletic Conference regular-season titles and back-to-back American Athletic Conference tournament crowns in 2021 and 2022.
