GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- When Florida’s director of administration and recruiting Mark Pantoni left to join new Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer in Columbus, Florida replaced Pantoni with program coordinator Brendan Donovan.

A source close to the Florida program confirmed on Wednesday that Donovan has turned down an offer to join Charlie Weis’ staff at Kansas, electing to stay at Florida.

The source said Donovan, who worked under Weis at Notre Dame, chose to stay because Florida head coach Will Muschamp and Weis were good friends, and Donovan didn’t feel like he was betraying Weis by remaining in Gainesville.
