Big and shocking news in Gainesville, Florida tonight as an NBA official has announced that Billy Donovan will be leaving Gator nation for some "Magic" in the pros.

Only a few months ago, after winning his second straight NCAA Championship, Billy Donovan rejected an opportunity to coach for the Kentucky Wildcats. It appeared he would cement his legacy with the Orange and Blue.

A Long Island, NY native, what most college basketball fans didn't realize was that deep in Billy D's heart, he always wanted to be an NBA coach.

He will get that chance with the Orlando Magic who will be paying him $28.5 million over 5 years to turn the franchise into a contender.
