Billy Donovan earned his net worth as the current head coach of the Florida Gators men's basketball team at the University of Florida. He has been the head coach of the Florida Gators since 1996 and led the Florida Gators to two consecutive National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) national championships in 2006 and 2007. He was born in Rockville Centre on Long Island, New York. His father Bill Donovan, Sr., was the third leading scorer in Boston College men's basketball history, and he sometimes coached Billy's youth basketball teams while working in the textile industry. Billy Donovan was the starting point guard for the Providence Friars men's basketball team and led the Friars to the 1987 Final Four; subsequently he is one of only four men to appear in the NCAA Final Four as both a player and to win an NCAA national championship as a coach.
