It looks like University of Florida head men's basketball coach, Billy Donovan, will be named as the new coach of the NBA's Orlando Magic.
In April, Donovan turned down overtures by the University of Kentucky to become its men's basketball coach. After winning back to back NCAA Championships at Florida, it appeared that Donovan was intent on building a super power at UF. But after losing most of the mainstays from the championship teams, and facing the prospect of rebuilding his program in a football obsessed environment, the timing couldn't have been better for Donovan to split.
Orlando wins by luring Donovan, at at time when he's on top of the basketball world, from nearby UF. Donovan likes it in North Central Florida. He won't have to move very far (but don't expect him to commute from Gainesville - anyone who's ever driven 241 from Gainesville to Orlando knows that it's not an easy drive).
