News reports say Donovan is not in play. But then again that was the way the Pitino hiring went a few years ago.
As for Gillispie being a premiere coach, he is a good coach but I am not sure he was ready for the bigs. He seemed to think his only job was coaching and recruiting.
At a place like Kentucky or North Carolina or Duke that is less than half the job. For some reason he didn't seem to get that. Even as late as the early exit from the SEC tournament, when he pretty much blew off the rest of his job at the press conference, he didn't get it.
The other thing that seems very odd on this is, two years in he still had not signed his contract, relying only on a Memorandum of Understanding which seems to have big loopholes for the University.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
