Former assistant John Pelphrey may be finding his way back to Florida Gators

Former Arkansas head coach John Pelphrey is headed back to Gainesville to rejoin Billy Donovan's staff, according to a tweet from FoxSports' Jeff Goodman.

Florida Gators officials will not comment at this time.

The news shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Pelphrey spent eight seasons as an assistant under Donovan at Marshall and Florida, and the two haver remained extremely close friends.

Pelphrey was fired last month after four seasons with the Razorbacks. Prior to that, he was head coach at South Alabama from 2002 through 2007.

Florida has a vacant position because former assistant Larry Shyatt left earlier this month to take the head coaching job at Wyoming.
