Danny White leaving UCF is more devastating than Scott Frost, McKenzie Milton departures | Commentary

Danny White often told us over the years that being the athletics director at the University of Central Florida was “the best AD job in America.”

He made us believe that building something at up-and-coming UCF was more worthwhile and more exciting than being an AD at some distressed, downtrodden Power 5 program.

But on Thursday, White accepted a job at one of the most distressed, downtrodden programs in all of the Power 5.

He accepted the AD job with the hapless, hopeless Tennessee Volunteers, who just fired their football coach Jeremy Pruitt and forced out AD Philip Fulmer amid a scandalous investigation involving a series of major NCAA recruiting violations.
