Billy Donovan: Not Interested In UK Coaching Job.

There's plenty of speculation about who will take over the UK basketball program now that head Coach Billy Gillispie has been fired.

Rumors have been flying around across the state about who should step in to fill that position.

Just like when Tubby Smith left for Minnesota, some were speculating that Florida head Coach Billy Donovan would take the job, but it now appears that will not be the case.

Donovan released the following statement on Friday afternoon:

"In response to the rumors circulating about my interest in other jobs, I wanted to address this as quickly as possible. I am committed to the University of Florida and look forward to continuing to build our program here."
