GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Coach Billy Donovan will stay at Florida, spurning a chance to return to Kentucky and take over the tradition-rich program, a person familiar with Donovan's decision said Thursday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision
had yet to be announced.

Donovan, who met with Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley earlier Thursday, planned to announce his decision at a 4 p.m. news

Donovan acknowledged interest in the Kentucky job this week, but
also said he intended to stay in Gainesville and continue building the program that won consecutive national championships.
