Georgia coach Mike White back to Gainesville to face Gators

Mike White knows it will be a bit strange going back to the Southeastern Conference school where he coached the last seven seasons. The Georgia coach is doing his best to stay locked in as the Bulldogs prepare to face Florida on Saturday. White left the Gators for their biggest SEC rival last March, stepping in after Tom Crean was fired by Georgia. White had some early success at Florida after replacing Billy Donovan, including a run to the regional final in 2017. But Florida’s performance tailed off toward the end of his tenure, and he moved to Georgia.
