Billy Donovan has told the University of Kentucky “Thanks, but no thanks”, according to ESPN’s Andy Katz. Donovan is reported as saying:
After finally having an opportunity to sit down with my family, and with Jeremy Foley, I’ve decided that I will remain at the University of Florida. I have great respect for the University of Kentucky, its great history and tradition, and I had five wonderful years in Lexington. That being said, I’m very proud of what we’ve built here at the University of Florida and I look forward to continuing build on it.
This is what I predicted, and it makes the most sense for Donovan; at least in my opinion.
While listening to the Reds beat up on the Cubs this afternoon, I was shocked; that’s right shocked, to learn that Bob Huggins will leave Kansas State for West Virginia. John Goodman of FOXSports.com writes:
The Kansas State head coach, who took over the program a year ago, has reached a tentative agreement to coach the Mountaineers,according to sources close to the situation. Huggins is expected to get on a plane and fly to Morgantown later today. A news conference is slated for Friday. Huggins met with representatives from West Virginia in Ohio in the past few days — after John Beilein left for Michigan. He returned to Manhattan on Wednesday night and reached the decision to leave Kansas State for West Virginia. He then met with the president and athletic director at Kansas State and while he was torn with the decision, he has decided to return home.
