Former Florida coach Billy Donovan and his wife, Christine, took out a full-page ad in the Gainesville Sun to thank Gator fans for their support.
Donovan, who accepted the Oklahoma City Thunder job at the end of April, coached the Gators from 1996-2015 and led the team to back-to-back NCAA titles in 2006 and 2007.
After spending two decades in the community, the Donovans offered a heartfelt thanks. "We leave with hearts full of love and cherished memories of euphoria and heartbreak – on and off the court – shared at every step with our Gator family," the letter reads.
Mike White replaces Donovan from Louisiana Tech.
