Donovan looking forward to future at Florida



GAINESVILLE - Billy Donovan said Thursday afternoon he has great memories of his time as an assistant at Kentucky, but he's looking forward to building a stronger tradition at Florida.

"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,'' Donovan said in a statement. "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 to build on it.''

A press conference is scheduled for 4 p.m. today at Florida.
