In an interview with the Bossman Radio Show that aired Monday, Grant called McCall a class act.
“I told Matt when I called to congratulate him on UMass,” Grant said, “when we play each other, we’re just going to call it the Billy D classic, or the Billy Donovan Invitational. We’ll have to come up with a name for it.”
When Grant left to coach at Virginia Commonwealth in 2006, McCall became director of operations at Florida. He was then an assistant coach at Florida from 2011-15. McCall spent the last two seasons as the head coach at Chattanooga, while Grant was an assistant coach with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
