Florida coach Billy Donovan earns 400th win as Gators stomp Stetson
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Billy Donovan literally dripped with joy after the Florida Gators' 96-70 win over Stetson.He's never coached a minute of football in his 16 seasons as coach of Florida (No. 9 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP), but he got football-caliber treatment from his players in the form of a Gatorade bath on the Amway Center court sideline in the seconds after he earned his 400th career win.But as the youngest active coach to reach that milestone and with a young team that is continuing to show signs of improvement early this season, it's a cleaning bill he said he won't mind paying at all.
Donovan Chasing Coach K?
It seems possible that Florida coach Billy Donovan could some day catch all-time D-I wins leader Mike Krzyzewski as the two share near identical profiles at the time of their 400th wins.
