DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Billy Donovan won't guarantee he will be back next season.
It's not because he doesn't want to make that promise.
It's because he doesn't want to break it.
Donovan reiterated at the Southeastern Conference's annual spring meetings Tuesday that he's committed to the Gators, but left open the possibility of jumping to the NBA.
Donovan said last week he has been in contact with ''several'' NBA teams about head-coaching jobs. He declined again to say which teams, but reports say the Cleveland Cavaliers have shown interest.
Donovan left Florida briefly in 2007, agreeing to become coach of the NBA's Orlando Magic. He changed his mind a few days later, returned to Gainesville and has been there since. He just finished his 18th season at Florida, where he has guided the Gators to two national championships and four Final Four appearances.
