Isiah Thomas Fired

April 7, 2012 by staff 

Isiah Thomas Fired, Florida International has fired men’s basketball coach Isiah Thomas, after the Hall of Fame player went 26-65 in three seasons.

Thomas took over in a surprising move in 2009, one that gave the former Knicks coach and president a chance to restore the reputation he tarnished through a series of embarrassments in New York.

Under Thomas, Florida International didn’t get more than 11 wins in a season.

The school announced the decision in a simple three-line statement.

“We want to thank Isiah Thomas for his three years here at FIU,” director of sports and entertainment Pete Garcia said. “However, we have decided to take the program in a different direction.”

– John Cooper, a Wichita State grad who has been the head coach at Tennessee State the past three seasons, has been named the new head coach at Miami (Ohio).

– Forward Deshaun Thomas will return to Ohio State for his junior season.

– Alabama forward Tony Mitchell and guard Charles Hankerson Jr. have left the team.
