Florida head mens basketball coach Billy Donovan, who was at one time considered to be a top candidate for the Kentucky coaching job just this past spring, has been confirmed as the new head coach of the NBA franchise, Orlando Magic.

While the AP report hedges on the size of the bump, it appears Donovan will bolt Florida for more than three times what the Gators were paying.

We don't follow pro basketball closely enough, however. That's a job for law enforcement.

The interesting part of the this story will be who will take the Florida job. The NCAA coaching musical chairs ended three weeks after the Gators won their second back to back championship, and it is unclear at this point who would be a top candidate who is still out.

We think we can rule out Florida A&M coach Mike Gillespie Sr.

If you have something to add, Fire Away!
