According to the Yahoo! News website
, White, 50, requested the release from the last two years of his contract, citing disappointment over missing out on the position as Wallabies coach to Ewen McKenzie.
Former Springbok coach White helped the Brumbies reach this year's Super Rugby final.
White plans to meet with Brumbies captain Ben Mowen in Cape Town ahead of the Wallabies' Rugby Championship clash against the Boks on Saturday to discuss his reasons for leaving.
It is understood he wants to return to South Africa where he has business interests.
Stephen Larkham is seen as the most likely replacement for White with the Brumbies.
