Billy Gillespie was fired by the University of Kentucky today. This website says that Billy Donovan is already the Wildcats’ next head coach. Much more on this still to come, I’m sure.
I’m not sure why Donovan would do this. He’s got a pretty good thing going already, this could only be seen as a lateral move. Sure Florida hasn’t made the tournament in the last two years, but that doesn’t change the back to back National Championships. My guess is that he takes the job today and then bolts back to Gainesville by next Tuesday.
