BOISE, Idaho - Thayer White has been named an assistant coach with the Boise State men's golf team, head coach Dan Potter announced, Monday.

White comes to Boise State after spending the previous season as an undergraduate student assistant coach at California while completing his degree in geography. White is currently pursuing his Master's degree in Athletic Leadership from Boise State.

"I would like to thank Boise State University and head coach Dan Potter for giving me this amazing opportunity," White said. "Both professionally and academically, Boise State is the perfect situation for me and I am honored by this coaching position.  Coach Potter has done a fantastic job with the program. I look up to his work ethic and values, and I am very excited to work with him."

"Boise State men's golf is a program on the rise. I am thrilled to contribute to the continuing progress of the program. I believe I will be a great mentor and facilitator for the players. My high school and collegiate experiences have prepared me well for my coaching position. I am ecstatic with the opportunity, and I can't wait to get to work."

While a member of the California coaching staff, White helped rising-junior Collin Morikawa to a NCAA Regional appearance. 

With the Broncos, White will assist Potter with all aspects of running the program.

"I am excited to welcome Thayer to Boise and the Bronco Golf community," Potter said. "Thayer has excelled in athletics as well as academics, and I'm confident he will be a great resource for our student-athletes and an asset to our program. He has an enthusiasm for helping others and being a positive influence on those around him. I think our players, our Masters Club members, and all fans of Bronco golf are going to enjoy getting to know Thayer as much as I have."

A native of Santa Barbara, Calif., White was a two-sport athlete for San Marcos High School before spending the 2012-13 season as a member of the Golden Bears roster, but did not see any action. White also appeared at the 2011 U.S. Junior Amateur.
