Wilford Daniel "Danny" White (born February 9, 1952) is an American football coach in the Arena Football League and also occasionally appears as an analyst on broadcasts of college football games. He was named the head coach of the Arena Football League expansion Utah Blaze, which began play in 2006. Prior to that, he served as the head coach of the Arizona Rattlers from 1992 to 2004, winning the ArenaBowl championship in 1994 and 1997. White's contract was not renewed by the new Rattlers ownership after the 2004 season following three consecutive ArenaBowl losses. In his first season coaching the Blaze, he led the team to a 7-9 record and a playoff berth where Utah fell to Arizona 57-34.

A graduate of Mesa Westwood High School in Mesa, Arizona, White had a stellar career as a quarterback and punter at Arizona State University and subsequently appeared briefly in the World Football League before catching on with the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys. Through 1979 he appeared primarily as a punter and backup to star quarterback Roger Staubach, but after Staubach's retirement following the end of that season he became the starting quarterback himself and for a few years did double-duty as its punter until around 1984.

White made the Pro Bowl in 1982, and led the Cowboys to three consecutive NFC championship games (1980-1982), but was widely criticized after the Cowboys lost each of the three despite having been favored in all three games. In 1984, he became involved in a minor automobile accident with a 17-year-old motorist, who referred to White as "you choking dog" once he realized who the driver of the other vehicle was.[1] The Pro Bowl is the National Football Leagues all-star game. ...

In 1986, the Cowboys started 6-2 and found themselves tied for the lead in the NFC Eastern Division under White's field generalship. During an away game against Bill ParcellsNew York Giants, however, a vicious blindside sack by Giants linebacker Carl Banks broke White's throwing wrist, both knocking White out of the game and ending his season. Dallas lost the game, 17-14, and without White, the team faded and finshed the year 7-9. It was the Cowboys' first losing season since 1965.

Carl Banks (Born August 29, 1962) was a former National Football League linebacker who played for three teams from 1984 to 1995, the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Browns. ...


After an unremarkable 1987 season, White would suffer a knee injury and miss the final nine games of the 1988 season. An option on his contract was not picked up in April 1989 and he retired, paving the way for Troy Aikman to take the reigns of the struggling franchise. Troy Kenneth Aikman (born November 21, 1966 in West Covina, California, USA) is a former American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League, and currently a television sportscaster for the Fox network. ...



White had 1,761 completions on 2,950 attempts for 21,959 yards, 155 touchdowns, and 132 interceptions in his career. He also gained 482 yards and scored 8 touchdowns on the ground. Unusually for a quarterback, he has two pass receptions for touchdowns, from a halfback option pass. On special teams, he punted 610 times for 24,509 yards, an average of 40.4 yards per punt, with 144 punts in the 20 and 77 touchbacks. His record as the Cowboys' starting quarterback was 62-32 (66% winning perecnatge) during the regular season, and 5-5 in the playoffs. The halfback option play is an unorthodox play in American football. ...


His career as a coach began shortly after his playing career ended. Even while still an active player, he was widely regarded--like Staubach before him--as knowledgeable of the game and as something of a coach on the field. In sports, a coach or manager is an individual involved in the direction and instruction of the on-field operations of an athletic team or of individual athletes. ...
