Prior to taking over as running backs coach, Donovan's position in the recruiting department included maintaining and organizing the Terrapins' recruiting database, setting up all recruiting events (official and unofficial visits, game day visits, recruiting weekends, etc.) and serving as director of all football camps held by the University of Maryland. In addition, he oversaw the group of graduate assistants employed by the team from 2001-2004.

Donovan's current post is his first full-time coaching position at the Division I-A level, but that is not to say that he lacks experience in the coaching ranks. Prior to coming to College Park, he served as an offensive graduate assistant at Georgia Tech for three years, working directly with then-offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen. In that time, he broke down all opponent game film, assisted with coaching quarterbacks (1998) and the offensive line (1999-2000) while helping Friedgen with game planning and practice preparation. During his tenure, Tech won an ACC Championship (1998) and had the nation's leading offense (1999), averaging over 200 yards passing and rushing while setting 59 school records in the process.

Notably, Donovan's first job as a position coach at the Division I-A level - though temporary -- came when Friedgen departed at the end of the 2000 season to become the Terrapins' head coach. Bill O'Brien was elevated to serve as the team's offensive coordinator for the 2000 Peach Bowl in Friedgen's absence and Donovan was called upon to serve as the Yellow Jackets' running backs coach for the game.

Prior to his arrival in Atlanta, Donovan worked as an assistant secondary coach at Villanova, helping the Wildcats in 1997 to a 12-1 season and a No. 1 ranking (Division I-AA) in the season's final six weeks. His responsibilities with the Wildcats included coaching the team's safeties, coordinating scout teams for the offense and special teams and breaking down game film for the defense.

A 1997 graduate of Johns Hopkins, Donovan was a three-year starter for the Blue Jays' football team. He was twice named an all-conference defensive back and recorded 12 career interceptions. While in school, he worked as a training camp intern for the Carolina Panthers, assisting general manager Bill Polian with the team's internal operations. He later went on to earn his master's degree in economics from Georgia Tech.

A native of River Edge, N.J., Donovan married the former Stacey Spicer of Potomac, Md., in May, 2005.
