Matt McCall Top Candidate for Vacant UF Assistant Job

Florida Atlantic Owls assistant coach Matt McCall is a top candidate for the vacant position on Florida Gators head coach Billy Donovanís coaching staff, two sources close to the team told OGGOA over the weekend.

The University of Floridaís director of basketball operations from 2004-08, McCall spent seven years under Donovan also serving as a team manager, head manager and graduate assistant. Donovan, who said last week that he wanted a young assistant to fill the spot vacated when Larry Shyatt departed for the head coaching job with the Wyoming Cowboys, has always held McCall in high regard.

Full Story

I really hope he doesn't leave, but when we don't pay our assistants any money, it's only a matter of time before they leave for other schools even if they aren't a head coach

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Can't blame him if he leaves. He obviously can recruit the Gainesville area, I'm sure he'd be getting paid a lot more and he goes from the # 2 assistant on a up and coming mid major to the # 1 assistant at a dominant SEC school

And…he's gone.

Can't blame the guy, Billy D has a great staff built up there and I'm sure he's making more than $30k per season now. How did the poor guy eat on that salary???
