GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Former head coaches John Pelphrey and
Norm Roberts have taken assistant jobs at Florida.
Coach Billy Donovan announced the moves Tuesday as he completely revamped his staff. Associate head coach Larry Shyatt took the head job at Wyoming last month, and assistants Rob Lanier and Richard Pitino left this week for opportunities elsewhere.
Pelphrey, who served six years (1996-2002) as an assistant under
Donovan, is returning to Gainesville after spending the past nine
seasons at South Alabama (2002-07) and Arkansas (2007-11). He was fired last month after posting a 69-59 record with the Razorbacks.
Roberts spent the last six seasons at St. John's. He was fired
last month after losing to Memphis in the first round of the NIT.
He was 81-101 and never made the NCAA tournament.
