The Cavaliers have not asked permission to speak to University of Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley told The Plain Dealer on Friday.

ESPN.com reported on Thursday that the Cavs were one of several NBA teams to reach out to Donovan about their head coaching position, and an NBA source told The Plain Dealer late Thursday night he believed the Cavs were “chasing Donovan first” before pursuing other coaching candidates.

The Cavs have not commented on the ESPN report, and Donovan’s agents did not respond to an email seeking comment on Friday. But Foley did respond to an email asking if the Cavs had asked for permission to speak to Donovan by replying, “They have not.”
