Re: Billy Donovan and UK...
Word out now is that UK has employed the same hiring firm to help with their "search" that hooked Tubby up with Minnesota. Do any of you wonder if their employment of the hiring firm is a smokescreen to counter the rumors of earlier this week?
Also, regarding that Cats Pause rumor, it only said that Donovan's agent had worked out a deal. Even if true, there's nothing that says that Donovan has to accept the deal. Perhaps he told his agent something to the effect of "Go work out the best deal you can and leave me out of it. I've got to concentrate on the Final Four. Tell me after the tournament is over what the deal is and I'll think about it."
I'm inclined to believe that some negotiating has taken place, and perhaps a deal has been worked out. That does not mean that Donovan will be coaching at UK, however.
