Donovan had agreed to a five-year, $27.5 million contract with the Magic, citing several reasons for his jump to the NBA. Donovan was excited about the Magic roster, the senior management team and the salary cap room. Not to mention, he liked Orlando's proximity to his home in Gainesville, which would have made his family's transition to the job easier.
But sources say, Donovan had a change of heart on Friday evening, and on Saturday morning began the process of returning as coach at the University of Florida.
Sources also say the Orlando Magic will make one last attempt at convincing Donovan sometime on Monday before ultimately letting him out of the contact should he still choose to.
