There were a lot of Florida fans who were sad when former Gators head coach Billy Donovan announced he would coach at the next level for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Even more fans started crying after his final press conference, but they shouldn't worry. He sees the sadness and the dedication that the people of Gainesville showed him and he gave one final thanks before he starts his NBA coaching journey.
As most people know by now, Mike White from Louisiana Tech has been hired as the new coach of the Gators and he has some big shoes to fill. Donovan won back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007, he got to four Final Fours, won SEC Coach of the Year three times, and won the SEC Tournament Title four times.
