Billy Donovan affirms commitment to Thunder amid Indiana speculation
It seems that Billy Donovan won’t be returning to the college ranks anytime soon.
The Oklahoma State Thunder coach, who has been linked to the vacant Indiana job, shot down those rumors Sunday, saying he’s very happy in the NBA.
Donovan told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that he is “very, very happy in the NBA and in Oklahoma City — and is committed there.”
Donovan was one of the most successful coaches of the last two decades in the collegiate ranks, winning two NCAA titles and making four Final Four appearances with the Florida Gators. Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, Donovan, like another former college coach who has been linked to the job, simply doesn’t see any reason to leave the NBA.
