Introducing Gators' new basketball assistant coach Rashon Burno



New Florida assistant basketball coach Rashon Burno said he's slowly getting acclimated in his new role, although the New York native admits getting used to the Florida heat is his toughest challenge so far.

"When it's 80 degrees at 8 a.m., man that's hot,'' Burno said.

The former DePaul point guard joined the staff in the spring after former assistant Norm Roberts left to join the Kansas staff.

Burno met with the media on Thursday, and talked about his playing days at the O'Connell Center, his ties to the famed St. Anthony's High School in New Jersey, and his admiration for Florida coach Billy Donovan.
