Billy Donovan Declines To Rule Out Coaching In NBA

Billy Donovan did not rule out an eventual move to the NBA.

“The one thing that I think is always intriguing the older I get is the fact that (the NBA) is just all about basketball,” Donovan said. “I love the practices, I love the games, I love doing individual instruction and breaking down tape and game planning and doing those things.

“Sometimes, I think, as you get older there is a lot of other things that you have to do here in college. For me, right now, I love Florida. I think the one thing that I’ve been fortunate of here is I’ve had the same athletic director, Jeremy Foley, since I first came here. He hired me and he’s still here. He’s wonderful and we have a great relationship.”

In 2007, Donovan accepted a five-year $27.5 million deal to coach the Orlando Magic, but had second thoughts and returned to Florida.
