Sources confirmed Friday White is leaving for the ACC school but he could not be reached for comment.
Earlier in the week it was confirmed defensive coordinator Don Brown is heading to Boston College.
All UConn assistant coaches are on one-year contracts.
White was a three-year starter at linebacker for N.C. State (1999-2001) and played on special teams.
White, who joined the staff from Western Kentucky in 2011, had never coached running backs before but had a solid reputation as a special teams coach.
It was unclear Friday which positions he would coach at his alma mater.
UConn, led by two year-starter Lyle McCombs and a struggling offensive line, had a rushing attack that ranked 117th in the nation (87.9 yards a game).
The Huskies were 17th in the nation in punt returns at 12.4 yards.
Recruit Not Coming
Lance Burlingame, a 6-foot-4 290-pound defensive tackle who committed to UConn's Class of 2012, is now heading to Florida Atlantic University.
Burlingame, from Dean College in Franklin, Mass., reportedly signed with FAU on Friday. He also, reportedly, had an offer from Purdue.
On Friday, sources said Burlingame had issues with his grades last fall and was unable to get into UConn.
