Just when it looked like all the drama with Billy Donovan was over, it might not be.
FoxSports.com, citing two anonymous sources, reported on Sunday night that Donovan was having second thoughts about becoming head coach of the NBA's Orlando Magic and was trying to return to Florida where he won the last two national championships.
Donovan, 42, agreed to a five-year, $27.5 million contract with the Magic on Thursday, but apparently the NBA team realizes Donovan is Gator-bound based on this statement released today by Joel Glass, vice president for communications for the Magic:
"While Central Florida, the Orlando Magic and Billy were energized with the announcement of his contract signing on Friday, we know there was a different feeling in Gainesville and people have been tugging at him since that time. Billy is conflicted with those emotions and the opportunity he has ahead in Orlando and in the NBA. We've had numerous conversations and a personal visit in Gainesville with Billy over the last 48 hours and we have a commitment from him that the dialogue between us will continue."
