Billy Donovan a popular target for St. John’s job

Billy Donovan has reportedly spoken with a St. John’s supporter about the possibility of taking over the Red Storm’s vacant coaching position, according to the New York Post.

“I am very happy here, and we have a very good team coming back next season,” Donovan told the Post in a text message. “St. John’s has a great tradition, and I have great respect for that program.”

According to the Post, St. John’s athletic director Chris Monasch has contacted Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley to receive permission to contact Donovan directly.
