Stephanie White -- who was named the head coach for Vanderbilt women's basketball team on May 24, 2016 -- recently completed her inaugural season with the Commodores. She guided the team to a nine-game winning streak early in the season, and her team capped the year with an impressive stretch that featured three wins in the span of four games against SEC foes in late February.
White came to Vanderbilt after serving two seasons as head coach of the WNBA's Indiana Fever. She led the team to the playoffs in each of her two seasons, including guiding the Fever to the 2015 WNBA finals. White was the first rookie coach in league history to take a team to the finals.
Before beginning her coaching career, White enjoyed a productive five-year WNBA career, spending one season with the Charlotte Sting and four with the Indiana Fever, before retiring in 2004. At the completion of her four seasons with the Fever, she ranked third in games played (112) and 3-pointers (92), and fourth in scoring (684). She was named to the Fever’s All-Decade Team that was announced in 2009.
As a collegiate player, White enjoyed a highly successful career at Purdue from 1995-99, averaging double-figure scoring in all four seasons. She capped her career by earning national Player of the Year honors after helping lead the Boilermakers to the 1999 NCAA championship while playing for head coach Carolyn Peck, who is now an associate coach on White's staff at Vanderbilt.
White was also a star in the classroom at Purdue, where she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and was an Academic All-American. She was inducted into the Purdue Athletics Hall of Fame on April 21, 2006.
In recent years, in addition to her WNBA coaching duties, White has also served as a college basketball analyst for ESPN and the Big Ten Network.
White and her wife, Michelle, have three boys: Landon, Aiden & Avery
