Mike White is an American football coach. He has 16 years experience as a head coach, including stints at the University of California (1972-1977), the University of Illinois (1980-1987) and the Oakland Raiders (1995-1996).

During his successful college coaching career, White was twice named National Coach of the Year, first in 1975 where he coached a team led by Joe Roth, Chuck Muncie and Wesley Walker to the Pac-8 co-championship.

White moved to the University of Illinois in 1980. White succeeded Gary Moeller, who in three seasons at Illinois would finish no higher than 8th in the Big Ten. White quickly turned around the Illinois football program, posting a winning season in only his second year. In 1982, Illinois went to the Liberty Bowl, the school's first bowl appearance since the 1964 Rose Bowl. The 1982 Liberty Bowl was also notable as the final game coached by University of Alabama head coach Bear Bryant. In 1983, Illinois won the Big Ten title with an overall record of 10-1, including a 9-0 conference record, and played in the 1984 Rose Bowl. White was honored for his team's achievements by being named UPI Coach of the Year. The 1983 Illinois team is the only team in Big Ten history to beat each of the other conference teams in a single season, (an achievement made possible by the fact that rarely in conference history have teams played all the other teams in a season.) White would also lead the Fighting Illini to the 1985 Peach Bowl. In eight seasons at Illinois, White's teams had a combined record of 47-41-3, for a winning percentage of .533. Along the way, White coached future NFL quarterbacks Dave Wilson, Tony Eason, and Jack Trudeau, and record-setting wide receiver David Williams.
